Illuminating BAFTA

The Illuminating BAFTA campaign has completely redeveloped BAFTA’s home at 195 Piccadilly, expanding its capacity and installing state-of-the-art technology throughout the building.

The redevelopment provides BAFTA with a dedicated learning space for the very first time, enabling us to dramatically increase the year-round work we do to find and support new talent, both in the UK and globally.

Having formally reopened on 27 January 2022, 195 Piccadilly is now a world-class centre for new talent and a vital investment in the creative future of our industries.

The redevelopment will enable BAFTA to:

  • Provide 80,000 people a year with the tools to pursue a career in film, games and television
  • Expand our flagship learning and new talent initiatives such as Breakthrough, Young Game Designers, Guru Live and Elevate
  • Support the creation of a new, UK-wide BAFTA talent development scheme to help talented young people from disadvantaged backgrounds find work experience and apprenticeships in the film, games and television industries
  • Create new initiatives to address skills gaps in the industry
  • Provide a regular public programme of events, deepening public appreciation for and knowledge of the craft of film, games and television
