This year the festival theme was 'Connect' and the aim was to encourage new and lasting links between Chelmsford City communities: connections between business, local authorities, schools, Anglia Ruskin University, Writtle College and voluntary groups. I love documenting the festival each year as it's a fantastic opportunity to meet wonderful people from the city and get a glimpse of the great work they are doing locally.
Here is a taster of the events I documented, you can see more photographs in the gallery here: www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/ideasfestival2015 and see photos from previous years here: www.jaynelloyd.co.uk/chelmsfordideasfestival
