Human Worlds Festival is the University of Southampton's annual celebration of Humanities.

It is a free series of events for members of the public, including families, to explore the humanities and beyond. In the past years, most of the events took place at the University's Avenue Campus, which is the home of the Faculty of Humanities, including disciplines such as Archaeology, English, Film, History, Modern Languages, Music and Philosophy.

For the first time, this year's festival will be taking place at the Southampton Cultural Quarter and is organised by the University of Southampton Public Engagement with Research Unit in partnership with John Hansard Gallery and City Eye.

This year the festival begins on Thursday 14th November and concludes on Saturday 23rd November.

Hands-On Humanities Day will be taking place on Saturday 23rd November - located at/in partnership with John Hansard Gallery, City Eye, Nuffield Southampton Theatres City (NST City) and Solent Showcase.

A special late-opening event, Humanities Late, will be taking place on Friday 22nd November at the John Hansard Gallery and City Eye.
