This brand new event in the TEDx program is the first time Parliament has participated in TEDx. Set in the stunning locations of Banqueting House with its Rubens Ceiling and The Houses of Parliament, it promises to be a great day.
Curated and hosted by experienced TED speaker Jonathan Drori the event will bring together a range of exciting speakers for "ideas worth sharing" on the theme of Democracy. We aim to surprise, challenge and inspire the audience.
TEDxHousesofParliament is a not for profit initiative. All the income from tickets goes towards the cost of putting on the event.
