The Mayor’s Thames Festival – London 11th &12th September

Feast on the Bridge

My first weekend in the UK after the longest summer break in years and that’s how London welcomes me: decent weather and a vibrant programme of events celebrating the river Thames.   

The 14th Mayor’s Thames Festival spraeds on bridges and by the river’s edge, from Westminster to London Bridge and beyond: gigs, Fairy Tales, exhibitions, the festival market showcasing the very best of independent designers, food stalls, arts&craft traders, refreshments and the explosive finale of the Night Carnival and Fireworks.  

My favourites? The Feast on the Bridge – Southwark bridge transformed into an endless table and the Balkan brass Bregovic-like sound of the Trans-Siberian March Band!
