The Great Exhibition Road Festival In response to government advice to the public on the coronavirus, the organisers have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Great Exhibition Road Festival on 4-5 July 2020. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Festival in 2021. The Great Exhibition Road Festival is a free three-day celebration of curiosity, discovery and exploration in South Kensington. Imperial College London is at the centre of this festival. The Festival brings together science and the arts in a unique programme of creative workshops, talks, exhibitions and performances - all in the spirit of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s vision for the Great Exhibition. Since the Great Exhibition of 1851, this road is where engineers, artists, educators and scientists from around the globe have reimagined the future. Their common spark? Curiosity. The Festival celebrates this spirit of innovation by bringing the arts, science and culture out onto the road we share. Plus, there’s plenty to explore across the institutions, galleries and museums on Exhibition Road and beyond. You can see the 2019 event here.
