About the Festival

The Great Exhibition Road Festival is a free annual celebration of science and the arts each summer in South Kensington. Join us in June 2024 for a weekend of free science and arts events for all ages.

Enjoy hands-on workshops, fascinating talks, performances and installations from iconic museums, research and culture organisations, including Imperial College London, the Natural History Museum, Science Museum, V&A and many more. 

Plus, you can indulge in food from all over the world and enjoy eclectic performances from the Royal College of Music and Royal Albert Hall.
