The Festival

Birmingham Design Festival
6th–8th June 2024

After our Conference in 2023, BDF will return in full festival format for 2024.

About the festival

Our festival is a biennial celebration of design held in June across Birmingham City Centre.

For three days, visitors can expect to choose from 20 free talks per day in one of our four Design Districts before coming together in the evening for a headline event in one of our larger venues.

In addition to talks, there’s a plethora of workshops, exhibitions, design tours and more to enjoy across the three days.
