The Inchbald School of Design is a vibrant and dynamic school and various events are held throughout the year

Autumn Lecture

An inspirational springboard held early in the academic year, the Inchbald Autumn Lecture is delivered by distinguished figures from the world of design. Previous speakers have included Anthony Paul, Guy Oliver, Nina Campbell and David Harber.

Annual Exhibition

The culmination of the Inchbald year is the Annual Exhibition, an opportunity for students to proudly showcase the extensive efforts of their studies. The exhibition takes place in July at a central London exhibition space and is attended by members of the design profession at a preview before being open to the public. This is a valuable occasion for students to network and make connections within the design profession. During Covid-19, the annual exhibition has been held virtually.

Graduation & Awards Cermony

Graduating from Inchbald is an important milestone for all students. Their hard work and dedication is marked with a ceremony where they receive their qualification from the Dean. A number of special awards are presented at this event for exceptional work judged by industry luminaries who have included Monique Tollgard, Marcus Barnett, Nina Campbell and Suzanne Trocmé.

Spring Lunch

Inchbald is deeply committed to maintaining its excellent links and relationship with the professional design world, which is what makes Inchbald a powerhouse of design education. The Spring lunch is a networking opportunity for current students to forge connections with luminaries of the garden and interior design professions. Hosted by the Dean, students, alumni, studio owners and media come together to pool ideas and connections and strengthen the bridge between education and career.

Why not explore a new career with the Complimentary Online Study morning?

Here at Inchbald we understand the hesitation felt by those embarking on a new career and how the move into such a creative profession is bound to intensify these feelings particularly if studying online. As there are so many mixed messages about who and what comprises a garden or interior designer, the School provides the opportunity to spend a virtual morning with Inchbald, in order to experience what it is like to study online with us, giving you the opportunity to explore not only the reality but also the possibilities.

Led by the Interior and Garden Design Faculty Directors, Alan Hughes and Andrew Duff, this morning gives an insight into the life of a garden and interior designer. Alan and Andrew will begin to teach you to see things differently, and actually start to look!
