Debate is the beating heart of HowTheLightGetsIn London 2022. Ideas are alive and evolving. At the edge there is rarely consensus.

Following this year's festival theme 'Error and Renaissance', HowTheLightGetsIn gathers together the leading thinkers in every field to think through the present and find new ways of understanding the world. Whether it's Peter Singer advocating for altruism, Grace Blakeley deconstructing modern economics or Tommy Curry dissecting race and gender, the conversations you'll hear will help shape the intellectual landscape of the country for years to come.  

The HowTheLightGetsIn London 2022 programme is totally unique and singularly accessible. From fiery debates to intimate solo talks, and from Academy courses to Inner Circle dinners, get ready to push the boundaries of what you know.
