The Radio Academy Festival 2022

7 September, Royal College of Physicians, London

In 2022, The Radio Academy Festival will be returning as a full in-person, one-day conference, at a brand new home in Central London - and we'd love to see you there!

The Festival is our annual day of celebration, debate and discussion, where you can hear from the movers and shakers in UK radio and audio - the bosses, the presenters, the politicians, and the leading creatives in our incredible industry. It's the biggest gathering of radio and audio people in the UK, and a fantastic opportunity to network and make new connections.

This year's Festival will take place on 7 September at The Royal College of Physicians - a stunning Grade I listed modernist building located on the edge of London's Regents Park.  And, for the first time in a decade, the Festival will be spread across two auditoriums, offering delegates a choice of two concurrent programmes of talks.

Festival tickets include lunch and an evening drinks reception, plus 30-days exclusive online catch-up access, so you can watch any sessions you missed on our website. (NB: we are recording the sessions, but we aren't live-streaming this year - this is a full in-person event).

Early Bird Tickets are on sale now, at the discounted price of £119+VAT.  There are 100 of these Early Bird Tickets available, and when they're gone they're gone - the price goes up to £149+VAT once they're sold out.

We'll be announcing details of our speakers and guests throughout the summer, but you can see details of our previous Festivals to have an idea of the kind of speakers The Festival attracts. If you love radio and audio, and want to hear from the people that make it happen, then get your Early Bird Ticket now!

NB: You must be a registered Radio Academy Member to attend The Festival. Membership costs just £36 per year, and is free for many people in the industry. Become a member now.
