  • The Festival of Britain was a national exhibition and fair that reached millions of visitors throughout the United Kingdom in the summer of 1951. Historian Kenneth O. Morgan says the Festival was a "triumphant success" during which people: flocked to the South Bank site, to wander around the Dome of Discovery, gaze at the Skylon, and generally enjoy a festival of national celebration. Up and down the land, lesser festivals enlisted much civic and voluntary enthusiasm. A people curbed by years of total war and half-crushed by austerity and gloom, showed that it had not lost the capacity for enjoying itself....Above all, the Festival made a spectacular setting as a showpiece for the inventiveness and genius of British scientists and technologists. Labour cabinet member Herbert Morrison was the prime mover; in 1947 he started with the original plan to celebrate the centennial of the Great Exhibition of 1851. However, it was not to be another World Fair, for international themes were absent, as was the British Commonwealth. Instead the 1951 festival focused entirely on Britain and its achievements; it was funded chiefly by the government, with a budget of £12 million. The Labour government was losing support and so the implicit goal of the festival was to give the people a feeling of successful recovery from the war's devastation, as well as promoting British science, technology, industrial design, architecture and the arts. The Festival's centrepiece was in London on the South Bank of the Thames. There were events in Poplar (Architecture), Battersea (the Festival Pleasure Gardens), South Kensington (Science) and Glasgow (Industrial Power). Festival celebrations took place in Cardiff, Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Perth, Bournemouth, York, Aldeburgh, Inverness, Cheltenham, Oxford, Norwich, Canterbury and elsewhere, and there were touring exhibitions by land and sea. The Festival became a "beacon for change" that proved immensely popular with thousands of elite visitors and millions of popular ones. It helped reshape British arts, crafts, designs and sports for a generation. Journalist Harry Hopkins highlights the widespread impact of the "Festival style". They called it "Contemporary". It was: clean, bright and new.... It caught hold quickly and spread first across London and then across England....In an island hitherto largely given up to gravy browns and dull greens, "Contemporary" boldly espoused strong primary colors.

  • Festival Britania (bahasa Inggris: Festival of Britain) adalah suatu pameran nasional yang diselenggarakan di seluruh wilayah Britania Raya pada musim panas tahun 1951. Festival ini diadakan oleh Pemerintah Britania Raya untuk menghibur penduduk Britania (British) dalam rangka proses pemulihan setelah Perang Dunia II serta untuk mempromosikan kontribusi Britania Raya dalam bidang ilmu pengetahuan, teknologi, disain industri, arsitektur dan seni. Penyelenggaraan Festival Britania dipusatkan di London, Inggris; di tepi selatan Sungai Thames. Ada juga sejumlah pameran yang diselenggarakan di (Arsitektur), (Taman Hiburan Festival), South Kensington (Sains) dan di Glasgow (Industri). Perayaan juga berlangsung di Cardiff, Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Perth, Bournemouth, York, , Inverness, Cheltenham, Oxford dan di tempat lainnya. Tur festival dilangsungkan di darat dan di laut di sekitar Britania Raya. Festival ini sering dikaitkan dengan Pemerintahan Partai Buruh pasca-perang pimpinan Clement Attlee yang kekuasaannya berhasil dijatuhkan oleh Pemerintahan Konservatif Winston Churchill sesaat setelah festival usai.

  • Le Festival of Britain (que l'on pourrait traduire par festival de Grande-Bretagne) est une exposition et manifestation d'art contemporain qui s'est tenue au Royaume-Uni pendant l'été 1951. Elle a été organisée par le gouvernement du Royaume-Uni dans le but de renforcer au sein de la population britannique le sentiment de redressement à la suite de la Seconde Guerre mondiale et de promouvoir les contributions britanniques dans les domaines des sciences, de la technologie, du design industriel, de l'architecture et des arts. Le site principal de l’exposition se trouvait dans le quartier londonien de South Bank en bord de Tamise, et les sites secondaires dans les quartiers londoniens de Poplar (pour l'architecture), de South Kensington (pour les sciences) ou de Battersea Park mais aussi à Glasgow (pour les réalisations industrielles). Des expositions moins importantes se sont tenues par ailleurs dans de très nombreuses villes du Royaume-Uni, les plus importantes se tenant à Cardiff, Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Perth, Bournemouth, York, Aldeburgh, Inverness, Cheltenham, Oxford, Norwich, Trowell et Canterbury. Le Festival a rapidement été associé au gouvernement de Clement Attlee et les sites ont rapidement été démolis (à l’exception notoire du Royal Festival Hall) après le changement de gouvernement et l’arrivée au pouvoir des conservateurs en 1951.

  • Il Festival of Britain fu un'esposizione nazionale che venne aperta a Londra e poi viaggiò per tutta la Gran Bretagna, nel maggio 1951. L'inaugurazione avvenne il 3 maggio Il sito principale dell'esposizione si trovava a South Bank sulla sponda del Tamigi vicino a Waterloo Station. Altre esposizioni erano state approntate a Poplar (architettura), South Kensington (scienze) e Kelvin Hall a Glasgow (industria). L'esposizione venne poi resa itinerante e fece il giro della Gran Bretagna per mare e per terra raggiungendo le seguenti località: Cardiff, Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Perth, Bournemouth, York, Aldeburgh, Inverness, Cheltenham, Oxford ed altri centri. A quel tempo, subito dopo la fine della seconda guerra mondiale, la gran parte di Londra era ancora in rovina e la ricostruzione era un'urgente necessità. Il Festival fu un tentativo di dare ai cittadini britannici la certezza della ricostruzione abbinata all'idea di ricostruire delle città più moderne ed efficienti. Esso celebrò il centenario della Great Exhibition del 1851. Il deputato del Labour Party disse del Festival che era "un tonico per la nazione". (it)

  • Het Festival of Britain was een nationale tentoonstelling die in Londen en door heel het Verenigd Koninkrijk gehouden werd in mei 1951. De belangrijkste locatie was op de zuidelijke oever van de Theems, vlak bij Waterloo Station, maar er waren ook andere locaties, zoals Poplar in Londen, Oost-Londen (architectuur), South Kensington (wetenschap), Glasgow (industrie), evenals rondtrekkende voorstellingen die door het hele land reisden. Op dat moment, vlak na het einde van de Tweede Wereldoorlog, lag Londen nog grotendeels plat en er bestond een grote behoefte aan wederopbouw. Het festival was een poging om de Britten nieuwe moed te geven en tegelijk zorg te dagen voor een betere kwaliteit van de ontwerpen bij de wederopbouw van steden. Het festival was tegelijk een herdenking van de wereldtentoonstelling die daar in 1851 gehouden was. Het initiatief kwam van Herbert Morrison, politicus bij de Britse Labour party (socialistische partij). (nl)
  • Festival of Britain var en landsomfattande utställning som ägde rum sommaren 1951 i Storbritannien med London som huvudort. Festivalen initierades av regeringen och var tänkt att bringa hopp i efterkrigstidens Storbritannien som efter krigsslutet upplevt fortsatta svårigheter och att visa på landets framgångar inom vetenskap, teknik, industridesign, arkitektur och kultur. Centrum för festivalen var Themsens södra strand. Andra evenemang ägde rum i Poplar, Battersea, South Kensington och Glasgow. Firanden skedde i Cardiff, Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Perth, Bournemouth, York, Aldeburgh, Inverness, Cheltenham och Oxford. (sv)
  • «Фестиваль Британии» (англ. Festival of Britain) — общее название национальных выставок, прошедших по всей Великобритании летом 1951 года.

Центр фестиваля располагался в Лондоне в районе Саут-Банк.

В народе фестиваль ассоциировался с послевоенным лейбористским правительством Клемента Эттли, и выставка в Саут-Банке была быстро расформирована с приходом к власти консерватора Уинстона Черчилля.
