FutureFestShoreditch Town Hall plays host to FutureFest this weekend, a two-day festival that will explore what the future could have in store. Through tasks, cutting-edge shows, technology displays and interactive performances the festival will look into how our future can be shaped for the better. Radical thinkers, makers and performers will cover topics such as Well Becoming, how to live longer, healthier and wiser lives; In the Imaginarium, how technology and creativity will transform our experience of the world; We are all Gardeners Now, owning our impact on the earth; and The Value of Everything, the political economy of the future. There will also be mass experiments, a decision tree and a futuristic take on Sunday lunch.

About Shoreditch Town Hall

Site of the legendary Whirly Gig parties in the nineties, Shoreditch Town Hall lends itself well to any type of gathering. Re-opened in 2005, following a £2.3m programme of refurbishment, the place has been smartened up since the rave days. There are grand public rooms for 600 people and smaller meeting rooms for as few as six and all are available for hire. More about Shoreditch Town Hall
