Debate is the beating heart of HowTheLightGetsIn London 2023. Ideas are alive and evolving. There is rarely consensus at the frontiers of knowledge.

Following this year's theme Dangers, Desires and Destiny, HowTheLightGetsIn gathers cutting edge minds, to interrogate what an increasingly dangerous future may hold, and our desire to change this fate. From political icon Rory Stewart to award winning physicist Michio Kaku, our cutting-edge speakers bring ground-breaking ideas to the idyllic grounds of Kenwood.

The conversations you'll hear will help shape the intellectual landscape of the country for years to come, from debates interrogating the failures of ‘the good’, to panels unpacking the illusion of time.

With pioneering speakers and thought provoking panels constantly being announced HowTheLightGestIn London 2023 is a mind expanding weekend that you don’t want to miss.
