Our major touring exhibition, New British Inventors: Inside Heatherwick Studio, reaches more than 400,000 visitors

We’ve been thrilled by the response to the tour so far with 122,332 visitors in Seoul making an incredible total of 409,109 visitors for all 6 tour venues in East Asia.

Tour highlights include:

  • Breaking visitor records in Taiwan, where the exhibition received 175,955 visitors
  • Long lines of enthusiastic visitors queuing for tickets at every venue
  • Reached an incredible 320 million people across East Asia through the media, with the Seoul figures still yet to come in.
  • More than 50,000 people reached via our events programme of talks from Thomas Heatherwick, curator Kate Goodwin and maker masterclasses from Heatherwick Studio in person, or via live-stream.

We look forward to seeing where we take the exhibition next!
