What is TEDx?

TEDxLondon Logo

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created TEDx, a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxLondon, where x = independently organized TED event.

At our TEDxLondon event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

2016 Event

The Science Museum

Taking place on 17 June 2016 at the Science Museum, TEDxLondon will explore the theme of ingenuity. Tickets cost £65 (£50 concession tickets are also available) and include all talks and performances (from 1pm to 7pm), refreshments and food and a free drink at the TEDxLondon 2016 evening reception in one of the Science Museum’s stunning galleries.

Due to the unprecedented demand for TEDxLondon, a Live Stream event will also be held in the Science Museum. Hosted by broadcaster Rick Edwards, this event includes a live stream of every TEDxLondon talk and performance and will feature Q&As with several TEDxLondon speakers and an invitation to the TEDxLondon evening reception.

You must be 14 or over to attend TEDxLondon and anyone under the age of 16 should be accompanied by an adult.
