National Geographic Traveller’s first-ever festival took place at The Brewery, London on 17 September 2017, drawing in over 600 guests. The all-day event saw a number of headline speakers take to the stage, including Benedict Allen, Paul Rose and Julia Bradbury. Attendees were able to choose from a packed schedule of events, including Travel Geeks panel sessions, travel writing and photography masterclasses, cooking demonstrations, and language lessons with headline sponsor Babbel. A number of smaller experiences, including flamenco and taekwondo lessons, yoga, mindfulness sessions, wine tasting, a photography exhibition and a virtual reality experience were also on offer throughout the day. Feedback from visitors was thoroughly positive.
The next National Geographic Traveller (UK) The Masterclasses will take place in February 2020. Read more here.
