Fellows Festival 2024 - The RSA - RSA

Fellows Festival 2024

The theme of courage took centre stage at the 2024 Fellows Festival where a packed programme of speakers and topics engaged, motivated and excited our fellow changemakers on the day and across an array of other international events. 

As the RSA celebrates its 270th anniversary, our flagship event demonstrated how our heritage has defined our commitment to courage. We also reflected on how nearly three centuries of social impact has shaped our behaviour and look at how we can be even braver and bolder in our social change ambitions.

The Fellows Festival is the highlight of our events calendar, and that was reflected in the number of global satelittle events. The festival took place in five locations across the UK as well as in the US, Oceania and Italy, helping Fellows connect and celebrate.
