30 days, 42 miles, over 100 events, 1 river…..with Totally Thames you’ll rediscover the iconic London river through a variety of artistic and cultural activities taking place until 30 September.
During this month of celebration you can enjoy a whole host of artistic, cultural, musical and educational activities. You can participate in regattas, races on the river, outdoor archaeology activities, and many more activities in the 17 London neighbourhoods that border the river.
Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, says:
Without the River Thames, there would be no London; this flowing thoroughfare has played a vital role in the history and success of our city. Fêted in art, poetry, music and film, it has provided a watery stage for major events, from the London 2012 Opening Ceremony to the Diamond Jubilee Pageant. Totally Thames is another great celebration of the river, which I hope will make people appreciate its significance even more, whether they use it for commuting, for transporting goods, or for pure pleasure.”
Totally Thames is a fantastic new addition to London’s cultural calendar and will be a real celebration of everything our world-famous river has to offer. The event promises to be a wonderful new platform for the exhibitions, attractions, events and activities happening year-round along the banks of the Thames. From Hampton Court in the west, to Greenwich in the east, this is an unrivalled opportunity to focus in on our diverse and vibrant riverside.”
If you decide to stroll along the backbone of the capital you’ll be able to enjoy art activities, talks, slow cruises, boat races, fireworks in spectacular locations, and an infinite number of other activities!
