May 07 - May 07, 2022
At last! After two years of navigating the Covid doldrums, I have exciting and expansionist news. We are exporting our FTWeekend Festival for the first time to a stage outside the UK. On Saturday 7th May next year, many of your favourite FT writers will host a one-day festival in the heart of Washington DC where we will tackle the big questions over music, the arts, literature and wine. There will be tastings and chances to meet and talk to our writers. Of course, for our global audience, we will be streaming sessions online and have a catch-up service. Our theme will be "reconnecting"; our ambition is to bring a global "big picture" perspective to a Washington stage. The world is moving at such vertiginous speed that it is hard to predict what will dominate the headlines in May. But, inspired by spring, we intend to bring a host of fresh ideas to reinvigorate the debates over politics, economics, the climate and much more.
