A collage of extreme weather events

FREE tickets available - WeatherLive: From One Extreme to Another

Saturday 16 October 2021 13:00 - 16:00 (BST)

6 October 2021

In recognition of this year’s WeatherLive being in a significant year with the UK hosting COP26 in Glasgow next month, we have taken the decision to make it FREE for all to attend.

Everyone has a part to play in addressing climate change, and the time to act is now. This event will help provide some context as we discuss the recent extreme weather experienced around the world that looks set to become more intense and frequent.

We will also be exclusively revealing the winners from the Weather and Young Photographer of the Year 2021 competition, in association with AccuWeather. Plus, we will be sharing the results of our new mobile category!

Don't miss the opportunity to join us live from your living room on Saturday 16 October 2021, 1-4 pm (BST).

We will be in contact with anyone who has already booked their ticket.
