Culture and science festival kicks off the Olympic Games

Date Posted: 24/05/2012

Exhibition ROAD SHOW is a major culture and science festival commissioned by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, running from the 28th July to 5th August.

Bringing together live performances, scientific experiments, large-scale games, and playful interventions, the nine-day festival programme will celebrate the area’s cultural heritage.

Offering a platform for creative talent, highlights include sculptures housing bees (pictured), a real meteorite embedded in the ground, a bicycle orchestra, and a pop-up ballroom.

A focus on science and discovery is at the heart of the ROAD SHOW programme. Activities include exploring the cosmos through a live meteor monitoring station, a particle accelerator, science busking, and investigating dedicated patterns in nature.

For anyone arranging a group trip to the festival, much of the action will take place from pop-up stages which will move in and out of Exhibition Road over the course of the afternoon and evening.
