If you are only just discovering the Glastonbury Symposium… then welcome.
Due to the current pandemic restrictions, we had to postpone this year’s main event. A special online event was held instead. However, here’s what we normally do, and plan to do in 2021!
At the Glastonbury Symposium you will be attending three days of mesmerising presentations from a series of top speakers who are here to discuss ‘truth, mysteries and new frontiers’ of many kinds, to challenge the accepted dogma of the mainstream with intelligent evidence and reasoned debate. Presenters and delegates alike come from all over the world each summer to attend this special gathering.
You will also be walking into a different world as you enter our auditorium, lit with atmospheric lighting and hung with colourful banners. We always try to create a warm and vibrant space in which to hear exciting new information, with professional sound and lighting – and an adherence to good timekeeping! In and around the Town Hall, the camaraderie continues, in our cafe, corridors and lively stalls room. Meanwhile, outside, there is historic Glastonbury itself, with its fascinating shops, famous abbey ruins and the sacred Tor never far away.
We have been running for an incredible 30 years now, and the wider background to the event, with a little history, can be found on our About the Symposium page, while some biographical notes on those of us who run the event can be found on the Organisers page.
If you have never experienced the Glastonbury Symposium before, we hope you will come and join us between 23-25 July 2021. Even if you can only make one or two days, it will be a pleasure to welcome you to our special event and we look forward to seeing some of you then.
