The British Academy Summer ShowcaseAimed at those with curious minds, the British Academy Summer Showcase sees the establishment open the doors to its beautiful Regency building for two days of interactive exhibits, talks, workshops and performances. Visitors will be able to meet some of the brightest minds in archaeology, art history and politics, and explore topics such as what Italian Renaissance art can tell us about global trade, what philosophy is for, how 3D printing is changing lives, and whether Londoners had more fun in the past. The event also includes a late-night view with exclusive talks and performances taking place alongside DJ sets and a full bar.
