Royal Geographical Society

Dive into our age 18+ festival zone for some serious fun! From the art of corrosion to hangover-free cocktails, this zone is where science meets art to create a truly unique and inspiring experience for adults.

In the grade II listed home of the Royal Geographical Society you can come face-to-face with people who fight environmental crises with a unique a photography exhibition before exploring the science of conservation, preservation and protecting art for future generations. After that, get hands-on with science and art and try your hand at controlled corrosion by creating your own custom copper keychain to take home.

In a zone that stimulates all the senses, you can then immerse yourself in a sonification art piece to explore the science of malaria elimination before you embark on a guided audio experience to learn about chronic cough. Or you can just grab a drink on our terrace garden and reflect on everything you have just experienced – an oasis for adults in the middle of a busy festival!

This zone is for ages 18+
