London Design Festival

Free

Started in 2003, the London Design Festival is a citywide exhibition of design in its broadest scope, typically featuring large-scale public installations.

After much deliberation, in consulation with their partners, the design community and the Mayor’s office, LDF has decided to go forward with 2020’s event. Full programme details will be announced closer to the event date, and can change at any time. This year’s festival will heavily focus on the local London design scene. There will also be an online component for those who cannot visit in person.

LDF’s Landmark Project for 2020 was The Hothouse, a Victorian style glasshouse with a ‘controlled habitat for cultivating plants that would not ordinarily grow within the UK’s climate’. The installation was located at International Quarter London (IQL).
