Show More

If the past couple of years have taught us anything it’s that life is no rehearsal. Everywhere you look rapid change is taking place and now as never before we have need for new thinking, tough decision makers and rapid action.

Representing the people, work, creativity and culture behind London’s most colourful and infamous district, home to the UK’s performance, media and creative industries, TEDxSoho will consist of a carefully curated program of short inspirational talks up to 15 minutes in length. We will bring to the stage the
innovators, leaders, mavericks, creatives and ground breakers, from Soho and beyond, who have chosen to rewrite the rules, throw away the book and set their sights towards a brighter future.

The day will be divided into hour long sections, interspersed with music and performances and punctuated with regular breaks, giving speakers and delegates many opportunities to network. TEDx is a global phenomenon, with events happening all over the world. Join us, become part of the global TED community and help make this event one to remember.


Prices displayed include an online per ticket booking fee. All prices include a £1.70 restoration levy.
