The annual Mayor’s Thames Festival stages an inspirational celebration of London’s iconic river through art, music and educational events both on the water and along its banks and bridges. However, this year, the event grows from a weekend of jollities to a massive ten days worth of fun and activities.

We urge you to take part in the concerts, riverside short film screenings, a floating art fair, an amazing 600-voice children’s choir, a rally of Dunkirk ‘little ships’, the Great River Race with more than 340 boats participating and even a Barge Driving Race (slow but sure).
