Venue & Location

We are proud to host Wonkfest at the Business Design Centre, London. Located 10 minutes from Kings Cross St. Pancras International and a short walk from Angel tube station, the BDC, surrounded by restaurants and bars, is one of London’s most popular conference and exhibition venues.


The BDC is in the ideal location bordering North and Central London making it easily accessible by any means.

Please make sure if you are walking to the venue, then you need to find the BDC just off Upper Street; for the best directions launch our location in Google Maps. The entrance on Liverpool Road is for loading only and does not allow access for pedestrians.


Here are a selection of places to stay.

We often get asked what to wear to Wonkest? But there is no dress code – Wonkfest is a uniquely relaxed event in UK higher education.

Food and drink will be available throughout the festival. And on Monday night we’ll be celebrating The Wonkhe Awards over a drink in the main venue before moving on to…

On Monday night, you are invited to The Wonkfest Late – a party for all our guests including plenty of food and drink. Details in the programme.
