What's on

We bring authors and audiences together in-person and online for conversations that we think are important, interesting and inspiring.

We work with partners who share our ambition. We’re proud to count among them the New York Public Library, Royal Vauxhall Tavern, Black Cultural Archives and the British Library.

Members attend all of our events for free. Digital passes include access to all online events. Both have access to our archive.
