The Thames Festival
In 2013, the Mayor’s Thames Festival undergoes an exciting transformation – it is extending from a concentrated weekend of riverside animations to a season of bespoke events that spans ten days and, over the years to come, it will be initiating and programming more and more activities both upriver and downriver from the area it has historically occupied between Westminster Bridge and Tower Bridge.
There will be an evolution to its character too, as the festival goes back to source and becomes more focused on events inspired by the Thames and water-related issues. Launching modestly in 2013, and growing in stature thereafter, the festival aspires to feature extraordinary new creative commissions, amazing river events, incentives to get people on to the river, and many new activities to connect, involve and inspire people with London’s greatest natural asset.
