This five-day-long festival (3-7 June 2019) features a packed programme of talks, panels, exclusive appearances, live performance, walking tours, film screenings and exhibitions, showcasing the world-class research being carried out by staff and students from across the arts, humanities, social sciences and education.

Playing host to a wealth of award-winning authors, iconic artists, emerging talent, international writers and leading thinkers, UCL’s fourth Festival of Culture offers over 80 opportunities to engage with the ground-breaking ways in which UCL research challenges social norms, confronts the past and helps us to think critically about the present.

UCL Institute of Education (IOE) academics are leading a number of events, exploring cutting-edge research and discussing some of the most pressing issues in education, social science and society.

These events cover a range of topics including faith in schools, multilingualism and British responses to the Holocaust, among others.

All of the events featured below are free of charge and open to all, however all require advance registration.
