BFI & Radio Times Television Festival

12 - 14 April 2019 at BFI Southbank

We are thrilled to announce the return of the BFI and Radio Times Television Festival to BFI Southbank in 2019.

Following our successful first festival in 2017, the TV fest will be back to showcase the very finest TV stars, giving insider stories from the best shows of the past years, as well as hot new previews for the coming year. Join us in April to meet the stars and watch tomorrow’s hits today.

2019’s festival will include Jed Mercurio speaking about the return of the hit series Line of Duty, the stars of The Big Narstie Show, and Jamie Oliver talking through his life and career as a chef.

Check back in January for more announcements.
