Meet the researchers shaping our world

Join us this June as we throw open our doors for the British Academy’s annual two-day Summer Showcase, a free festival of ideas for curious minds. Alongside a programme of pop-up talks, workshops and performances, 12 of our researchers will bring their work to life – from livestreamed global connections and an immersive VR experience, calligraphy workshops, live woodcarving and a conspiracy kitchen. Meet the brightest minds in history, psychology, sociology and more, and be inspired to think differently about the world around you.


Opening hours:

Fri 17 June, 9am–3pm

Sat 18 June, 11am–5pm
