Great Exhibition Road Festival

GERF 2019During the summer of 2019 Imperial partnered with more than 20 neighbours across Exhibition Road and South Kensington, including some of the world’s most iconic museums and institutions, to create a unique festival.

Over 60,000+ people attended the first-ever Great Exhibition Road Festival to enjoy a mixture of art and science, culture and local history, technology and curiosity.

Festival returns in 2021!

Now the Festival has been confirmed as an annual tradition in this part of the capital, the Festival team will be seeking proposals for the July 2021 Festival from autumn 2020. Staff and students will be able to submit ideas for research demonstrations, talks, workshops, behind-the-scenes tours, music and dance performances, and any other contribution that might entertain and inspire the public.

More details and deadlines for proposals to be submitted will be published in autumn 2020.
