Meet the thinkers shaping our world

Join us this June as we throw open our doors for the British Academy’s annual Summer Showcase, a free festival of ideas for curious minds.

Meet the thinkers shaping our world with their pioneering social sciences and humanities research through our programme of engaging workshops, pop-up talks, film screenings, panel discussions and performances.

Taking place throughout our home in 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, you will also be able to see inside our Nash-designed, Grade I-listed building, overlooking the Mall and St James’s Park.

The Summer Showcase is open, free, to the public on Saturday 17 June. We are also opening the festival to schools on Friday 16 June, and to early career researchers on the evening of Friday 16 June.

Come along, learn something unexpected, and be inspired to think differently about the world around you.

A major redesign of our home at 10-11 Carlton House Terrace will open up the Academy and provide new, flexible and state-of-the-art event spaces in 2024. Therefore, our 2023 Showcase will not feature exhibits as previously. However, our programme will still offer opportunities to engage directly with pioneering research.


Opening hours:

Saturday 17 June, 11am–5pm

Please note, a ticket is not required for this event but it really helps us to know that you are attending!
