But one thing for certain is that all our featured talks are thought provoking and are set to challenge the status quo.

From the story of the Grenfell Tower survivor, to the talk that questions everything we know about the history of the pyramids and their purposes - for the eighth year, BOLDtalks continues to gather a diversity of discussions by some of the world’s most fascinating people.

Join our programme this Saturday 24th March at 6pm in The Junction, Al Serkal Avenue, to take part in the featured talks and debates.

The event is ticketless, but limited to the first 200 to register.
