Set on the edge of Hampstead Heath with unrivalled views of the City, Kenwood House is an oasis in the capital and the magical location of HowTheLightGetsIn. HowTheLightGetsIn London keeps the intimate scale of our world-renowned Hay festival and blends it with the pomp and swagger of the capital.

Our venues are small enough to encourage real conversation, electric enough to make the dancing spin. If you've been to HowTheLightGetsIn, you'll know why this festival draws award-winning musicians and Nobel prize-winners, critics and intellectuals alike into its orbit. If you haven't, it's time to see what all the fuss is about.
