Great Exhibition Road Festival

People looking at an exhibition at the FestivalThis year, for the first time, we are joining forces with our neighbours to bring you a huge celebration of art, science, technology and curiosity. A collaboration between the world’s most iconic museums and institutions, The Great Exhibition Road Festival invokes the spirit of the first Great Exhibition in 1851 and marks the bicentenary of the births of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

Beat the crowds!
