The Festival is a weekend dedicated to sharing the best science and arts on offer from Imperial.
The story so far
What started as a modest pilot project in 2012 to explore how Imperial College London might share its research with more people in new ways has now evolved into a large-scale and prominent annual fixture in the College’s calendar. This year, more than 15,000 public and alumni visitors descended on Imperial’s South Kensington campus to enjoy the interactives, workshops, tours, talks and performances on offer at the 2016 Imperial Festival.
Support from mainstream media suggests that the event has grown into something significant for audiences from outside College as well, with the Guardian describing it as “a fascinating event” and the Londonist observing that “whoever programmed this glorious beast must have used hyper-dimensional graph paper”.
