Hello! Welcome to the London Careers Festival, a free programme of events that focuses on skills, work experience and employability. The event is designed to connect children and young people with businesses, so not only are they introduced to the diverse array of opportunities offered within the City of London and across the rest of London, but also to fuel their imaginations and help inform and shape their futures. Our timetable has been carefully curated to meet the Gatsby Benchmarks which can be used to help enhance your school’s careers provision, thus ensuring maximum benefit to those who participate.
The London Careers Festival’s programme is divided into three sections: Primary Years 5 & 6, Secondary Years 8 & 9 and Secondary Years 10, 11 & 12. To view events, please select the school year you wish to book for.
All events are ticketed and are only available via the London Careers Festival website. On booking, you will be taken to an Eventbrite booking page. All bookings are password protected. We advise that you book tickets promptly as places are limited. Once an event is ‘SOLD OUT’ further tickets will not be released. Fringe events on Monday 17, Thursday 20 and Friday 21 June have a limited availability. However, new events will be added up until the festival, so please do keep checking the site. Students must be accompanied by a teacher or TA to all events across the London Careers Festival.
The London Careers Festival take place at the GUILDHALL on Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19 June, and at many different locations across London on the Fringe Days - Monday 17, Thursday 20 and Friday 21 June.
Centrally located on Gresham Street, Guildhall is just a few minutes from Bank, Mansion House and St Paul’s underground stations and a short walk from Cannon Street, Moorgate and Liverpool Street underground and rail stations. All Guildhall-based events are accessed via the Art Gallery in Guildhall Yard.
Please note there will be NO access for vehicles to collect, drop-off or park either on-site or in the surrounding streets. We ask that you use public transport when attending the London Careers Festival - your school could get free off-peak group travel when you register for TFL’s School Party Travel Scheme
London Careers Festival offers a wide selection of Fringe Events. All Fringe sessions are managed by the host business or organisation. Once a Fringe session has been booked via Eventbrite and tickets confirmed, London Careers Festival will transfer the school’s contact information directly to the Fringe Event’s host business or organisation. The Fringe Event host will then contact the school ahead of the event.
