FutureFest 2020Exploring what the future could have in store, FutureFest returns to Tobacco Dock in 2019 for a day of immersive experiences, cutting-edge shows, technology displays, and radical talks in order to answer questions like how the planet can sustain us and what Alexa will do with our biggest secrets. Writer and TV presenter Richard Ayoade, author and activist Elif Shafak, MP and campaigner David Lammy, and co-founder of Extinction Rebellion Gail Bradbrook are among the speakers while another highlight is Osmo, providing the chance to escape from the world and gaze up at an undisturbed night sky.

 

About Tobacco Dock

Built in the early 19th century as a secure warehouse for receipt and storage of tobacco from the New World, Tobacco Dock is now a unique space that plays host to high profile events each year. Re-launched in October 2012, it has its own outdoor, quayside space as well as a Great Gallery, Vaults, a Quayside Bar and unique walkways that stretch for more than 100 metres.
