Thames Festival

With activities all along the River Thames between Westminster Bridge and Tower Bridge, London's Thames Festival offers everything from a carnival procession to live music, art installations, street theatre and pyrotechnic displays. Best of all - it's free!

The defining feature is the Night Carnival on the final night, a shimmering parade of musicians, dancers and masqueraders that snakes its way along Victoria Embankment, across Blackfriars Bridge and west along Upper Ground. The evening culminates in a fireworks display.

Daytime events are concentrated on the South Bank promenade. The Festival Market brings independent artisans, craft and food stalls, while the Festival Freedom Stage features a range of global sounds. Along the river are community and river-related displays, environmental activities and lots of creative fun for kids and families.
