About The Imperial Festival

Make a date with discovery at Imperial Festival - a free weekend of hands-on science, new technology, live music, fascinating talks, creative workshops and tasty street food!

Explore the science of drumming, take on a robotic arm at air hockey, or play classic video games or compose beautiful music with just your brain waves. Alternatively learn what impact London is having on our health, try out special air pollution sensors, and find out how you could make your daily commutes a little bit healthier.

The annual Imperial Festival returns for its seventh year on 28-29 April at the College’s South Kensington Campus with a showcase of technological marvels to celebrate of the Year of Engineering, a hands-on zone for families, and talks from world-leading thinkers and doers.

The public will also have the chance to go behind-the-scenes and explore the latest research and innovations from Imperial College London through interactive demonstrations, workshops and live experiments.

Creativity and culture will also be at the forefront with vibrant live music and dance performances, a theatrical performance exploring the boundaries between medicine and the arts, plus delicious treats from some of London’s best street food vendors.

More than 150 exhibits will be on show at the Festival, grouped into themed areas including new zones:

  • The Hands-On Zone: An interactive space for all young people, from toddlers to 12-year-olds. It includes Breathing Together – a project investigating childhood asthma created by Okido Studio (the people behind the popular CBeebies TV programme Messy Goes to OKIDO) and researchers from Imperial and other UK research institutions.

  • Spotlight talks: A dedicated space featuring a packed programme of talks by luminaries in the fields of science, technology, health and business – including volcano researcher Dr Christopher Jackson who will share exclusive footage of his expedition to Mount Nyiragongo as part of the BBC 2 documentary, Expedition Volcano. Writer and Call the Midwife star Stephen McCann will also be on campus for a Q&A about his new book Flesh and Blood: A History of My Family in Seven Sicknesses.

  • Enginuity: Novel solutions designed by Imperial engineers will be on show in a special zone celebrating the international Year of Engineering. The showcase will feature eco-marathon racing cars, fire tornados, body controlled computer games, and a baby buggy with hazard response.
