This summer, explore the trailblazing ideas, people and communities that are changing our world with a weekend of free events for all ages celebrating science and the arts.

Join us in South Kensington this June as Exhibition Road is transformed into a huge festival to explore the extraordinary as we celebrate London’s innovators, scientists, artists and designers and the everyday heroes who inspire us all.

Enjoy hands-on workshops, fascinating talks, performances and installations from iconic museums, research and culture organisations, including Imperial College London, the Royal Albert Hall, Science Museum, V&A, Natural History Museum and many more.
