The Cambridgeshire Festival of Education is

'The most optimistic education festival in the world, probably!' 


Project managed by The Kite TSA Cambridge this annual optimistic and joyful celebration of teachers and teaching has been inspiring and energising teachers since 2017.

Headteacher and NLE, Rae Snape curates this rich and exciting programme by connecting with some of the most inspiring and optimistic thought-leaders in the world of education today. CambsEdFest (as it is fondly known) is nationally recognised through its iconic flamingo. This is the festival's motif for the optimism and positivity that we need in education today, as Rae Snape says 'For the sake of our children, colleagues and community we should be flamingos of hope rather than lemmings of despair'.  

Cambridgeshire Festival of Education is Project Managed by Suzie Young and Produced by Anna Taylor. It is entirely funded through ticket sales, sponsorship and with a communication partnership with the Department for Education. We are actively looking for sponsors for CambsEdFest 2020 and beyond.
