EdYOUfest, proudly associated with Millfield Enterprises

Mark Greenow

Director, Millfield Enterprises

We are delighted to welcome EdYOUfest to Millfield School. In collaboration with our valued partner Gallery Teachers we intend to make this a memorable and enriching experience for all participants. I look forward to meeting you here.

About us

EdYOUfest is a festival for ELT teachers, who come together each year to learn and grow, in a supportive atmosphere with fellow educators from over 20 countries across the globe.

We welcome teachers of English as well as content or subject teachers* who have connections with their language teaching colleagues. Our aim is to dismantle barriers, encourage communication and to foster real collaboration between all involved in this branch of the teaching profession.  

Our first event was in Genoa. Since then we've held events in Palermo and Paris. This year we'll be based in the English town of Street, Somerset, very near to the ancient pilgrimage place of Glastonbury. We're planning an exciting line up of presenters, and, as ever, EdYOUfest is a workshop-based event.

 *Participants need to have a minimum B2 English language level.

‘Keep on Running’… this was our starting point for EdYOUfest; an event that we envisage teachers enjoying the opportunity of playing an active part and not simply being a passive audience.‘Keep on Running’ is still the path we want to follow…Thank you to Millfield Enterprise for hosting EdYOUfest 2018, for making it our special home for those four days, where all of us will enjoy the fantastic facilities and the support of the enthusiastic staff. See you soon at EdYOUfest and if you can’t join us this time, don’t worry we’ll be streaming a lot of great moments!
