Wave goodbye to summer at the Thames Festival

The 14th Mayor’s Thames Festival kicks off this afternoon, with events taking place on the riverbanks, bridges and river from noon until 10pm, anywhere between Westminster Bridge and Tower Bridge.

There are seemingly countless events and stages, with street arts, a bandstand, countless performers, a carnival, films, a chance to tuck into a feast on Southwark Bridge, exhibitions, al fresco jive dancing, river events, a new beach beside the Thames, a river parade, markets, circus, music and dance.

It all culminates in a carnival parade and fireworks on Sunday evening. For more information, see the patchy website at http://www.thamesfestival.org/

  1. I'm heading to this tomorrow! Looking forward to it.

    Have a good weekend.


  2. Hi, great blog and very interesting content, I've been to the Thames Festival today and posted some photo on my blog, I also have a blog about London called 'Adventures of a Brazilian girl in London'.

  3. Did they have the fire garden again this year? I thought it was a one-off. Shame I missed the Thames Festival this year. Until next time...
