RSA Events programme

World-changing ideas. For free. For everyone. 

We believe in the power of ideas. We believe that everyone has a right to the very best new knowledge and analysis of our world, how it’s changing, and why that matters.

RSA Events has offered free public access to the brightest, sharpest, most courageous, most creative minds for more than 250 years.

Today, we engage more people than ever in the conversations that will shape the future, finding new ways to illuminate, inform and inspire. From talks, panels and podcasts to salons, screenings and award-winning animations.

Welcome to RSA Events. Inspirational Talks. Reasoned debate. Rich insights.
