The Cultural Programme will bring together informative, immersive and transformative experiences that celebrate the very best of the UK, past present and future.  

Cultural experiences will be delivered across the 6 months, uniting with other UK and Expo programmes at key moments, topped with a minimum of one key cultural showpiece per month.   

We will activate, physically and virtually, on the UK Pavilion, across and over the Expo site with a series of performances, exhibitions, conversations and experiences that showcase the UK's creativity & culture, the heartbeat of our history and society. 

Our cultural offer will be expansive encompassing content attractive to the broadest possible audience, engaging adults and children, business and leisure visitors alike. As such we will wrap in music, sport, cuisine, film, immersive, performing arts, fashion, art and heritage into our experiences.
