Will Smith’s transformation from a West Philadelphia kid to one of the biggest rap stars of his era and then one of the biggest movie stars in Hollywood history is an epic tale - but it's only half the story. For the first time, Will Smith opens up fully about his life, tracing his learning curve to a place where outer success, inner happiness, and human connection are aligned.

Joined by special guests and moderated by Idris Elba, this will be an unforgettable evening sharing the profound journey that self-knowledge brings, a reckoning with all that your will can get you and all that it can leave behind. Every ticket includes a copy of Will Smith’s memoir, WILL, written with the help of Mark Manson, author of the multi-million-copy bestseller The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.

Please note: this event will be live streamed from the Savoy Theatre, London, to Studio 3 at Riverside Studios.
