Join our Who London host and other Who Londoners for a truly mesmerising afternoon. This wonderful exhibition, BAFTA: Behind The Scenes, celebrates the creativity and talent of BAFTA winners and nominees. You will discover inspiring stories from the award-winning people who write, make, shoot and shape what we the viewers see on screen.

Your ticket covers our organisation and bringing everyone together. Our Who London host looks forward to welcoming you for coffee at a particularly nice Starbucks venue in Mayfair (drinks not included in your ticket). Then our host will take everyone to the nearby BAFTA exhibition, which is free and only 3-minutes walk away. Please note some of your group may have to wait outside for a while depending how busy it is when you all arrive. (There is a café at the exhibition but the space is very small.) You’ll need around 40 minutes at the exhibition and there will be some great talking points there!
