Help us inspire people this summer by being part of the Great Exhibition Road Festival. Join a fantastic team of volunteers and help us build an event that shares the wonder of science and the arts with people of all ages.

Sign-up here.

Our Great Exhibition Road Festival is a partnership with the Science Museum, V&A, Natural History Museum and more making it London’s biggest celebration of science and the arts.

It’s a vibrant, fun festival and it’s our chance to show that what we do here at Imperial isn’t just for the lab, the library or the journals and what happens in museums isn’t for the few. Science and the arts are for everyone and we want to inspire people and empower communities.

That’s where you come in. Could you give your time, enthusiasm and skills to help make 2020’s festival the best one yet?

Anyone at Imperial can be a part of the team, no experience needed. From welcoming visitors to social media, there’s a role for you.
