A month-long annual arts and cultural festival, at venues spanning the length of the Thames. The sheer variety of events is staggering, from concerts and art installations to activities and exhibits.
This year’s centrepiece is the “Ship of Tolerance” installation on the Royal Docks. There’s also a scented look at Barking’s industrial past and a night of tango dancing aboard a 19th century paddle steamer. There’s plenty of action on the water too. That includes sea kayak and stand-up paddleboard taster sessions, a regatta and a Thames swim. Be sure check our complete guide for highlights before you make your way over!
