News / Lancaster’s Array Festival Returns

Lancaster’s Array Festival will return in May to showcase digital, tech and innovation, building on the success of last year’s inaugural event which saw 300 attendees tuning in to a wide range of talks, seminars, and virtual showcase events.

17th-20th May 2021 are the dates to mark in your calendar, when Array Festival will be delivered as a hybrid event, incorporating both virtual and physical platforms.

Whilst a number of the events will be broadcast to a virtual audience, others will be live streamed from the city’s new digital and tech hub, Fraser House, in front of a live audience, exploring themes such as:

  • Elec–Tech
  • Digital and Tech Innovation
  • Creative
  • Social Innovation
  • Net Zero
  • Health Innovation

Festival organiser Dan Knowles is looking forward to this years event. “In 2020 Array Festival had a great start, and despite the pandemic, it was a huge success. This year the event will be more polished, and key themes of Digital and Creative, Low Carbon and Electech will be represented as well as an inspiring day to focus on recovery.”

The event’s main aims are to encourage enterprise in the city region and promote high skilled job opportunities. “North Lancashire is quickly becoming a hotbed of innovation in a number of sectors. The unique location of the city region means Lancaster is a terrific place to invest or start a career,” Dan continued.
