The Great Exhibition Road Festival


28 - 30 June 2019 | South Kensington

This Summer we're bringing our annual Festival out onto Exhibition Road for a new three-day celebration of curiosity, discovery and exploration in South Kensington that brings together arts and science. 

We’re hoping to engage more people than ever before with not only the amazing research and innovation that we do every day but with our amazing Imperial community. This is the biggest and most collaborative event we’ve ever run, a true celebration of the sciences and the arts coming together.  

It's also the biggest volunteer team we’ve ever needed to help us make sure everyone has a great experience at the Festival. We’ll provide you a choice of shifts across the Festival, training and orientation of the site, free lunch each day and thank you celebrations pre- and post- festival. It's also a great chance to get to know different people from across the College and those from over 20 partner organisations that are helping to deliver the Festival. Join us! 


FULL DAY 10AM - 6PM  |  HALF DAY 10AM - 2PM OR 1PM - 6PM 


There are lots of different roles available at the festival all of which are vital to creating a positive experience for all:

  • Welcoming visitors to Imperial
  • Assisting with visitor queries at the information tents 
  • Helping to supervise one of our Festival Zones, ensuring that both researchers and the public have everything they need 
  • Supporting behind the scenes with set up or on the day in backstage staff, performer or volunteer space
