Are you up for Questival?
QUESTIVAL is a weekend of camping and freethinking, run by the AHS – the National Federation of Atheist, Humanist and Secular Student Societies which is the umbrella organisation for non-religious student societies in institutes of higher education across the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
The annual event provides a physically and mentally challenging weekend, designed for adults with a rational worldview. The organisers’ aim is to entertain, educate and exhaust participants Â in equal measure.
Questival Â – inspired by Camp Quest UK – takes place this year between August 5-7 August, at Croft Farm Water Park, near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire. Croft Farm is located in the scenic River Avon Valley and features its very own lake. Croft Farm has modern toilet and shower facilities and a lakeside bar.
Questival has stand-up mathematician Matt Parker performing on the Saturday night, as well as a special recording ofÂ The Pod Delusion.
Two in-depth workshops will also take place: first up is an in-depth workshop on media spin and fallacies with renowned philosopher Julian Baggini. Then the team from The Pod Delusion will give a primer on the current state of skeptical reporting – including the chance to write and perform your own report in the evening’s show!
There’s also the spectacular and dastardly Questival Treasure Hunt – decode the clues and solve the puzzles in a giant quest set in and around Tewkesbury city centre.
