Innovation and talent: since its foundation, in 2009, Clerkenwell Design Week has attracted the international design community, establishing itself as the UK's leading independent design festival. And, after visited the seven main exhibitions of this year, we can confirm it is completely unique, an exciting event for experts and also for festival first-timer, a real insipiration for the Exhibition industry.
From 23-25 May, all two-and-a-half square miles of the famously-creative district will be packed with shows and installations in some of the capital's most interesting and historical buildings.
Now in its eighth-year, the three-day festival is made up of seven main exhibitions, each with a different theme, across seven main venues and 100 spaces in total. With a designated north-south route through the district, taking visitors from Exmouth Market to Smithfield, it's easy to stroll from one free event to another - just follow the bright pink signs.
