The Great Exhibition Road Festival
June 18 @ 12:00 pm – June 19 @ 6:00 pm
Join us in South Kensington this June as Exhibition Road is transformed into a huge festival to celebrate London’s scientists, artists, and the everyday heroes who inspire us all.
The Great Exhibition Road Festival is a free annual celebration of science and the arts each summer in South Kensington.
This summer, you can explore the trailblazing ideas, people, and communities changing our world with a weekend of free events for all ages celebrating science and the arts.
Enjoy hands-on workshops, fascinating talks, performances and installations from iconic museums, and research and culture organisations, including Imperial College London, the Royal Albert Hall, Science Museum, V&A, Natural History Museum, etc.
Get creative at our events for all ages, from the Chemical Kitchen cheesecake cook along to Blueprints, where you will explore the art of making cyanotypes. Build your musical instrument or join the fashion surgery to redesign your unloved clothes. Hear about how science and the arts are leading the way to a brighter future at the Augmented physicality discussion with gaming and AR experts, or go on an exciting adventure back in time to learn about dinosaurs at the Dino show.
Anyone can be a trailblazer. From the Victorian innovators of the Great Exhibition in 1851 to the people changing their communities today and those shaping the future with their research, uncover the stories of both renowned and lesser-known creatives and researchers. Come along and make your vision of the future as the Great Exhibition Road Festival invites you to discover the power of ideas, celebrate curiosity, and reimagine a new world.
