Meet the authors at the Great Exhibition Road Festival Our programme of 'Meet the authors' events takes part in the Great Exhibition Road Festival, a free three-day celebration of curiosity, discovery and exploration in South Kensington. The Great Exhibition Road Festival is a free three-day celebration of curiosity, discovery and exploration in South Kensington. It is a collaboration between institutions on and around Exhibition Road. You can find full details of this festival here. Join us for a programme of literary discussions from Friends of Imperial College. These literary festival style interviews are with authors of new, recently published or soon to be published books. Our guests all have one thing in one common - they work on or around, or have links to, Exhibition Road. During their slots they will talk about the inspiration behind their books and take questions from the audience. See the full programme here .
