Details have been announced for the 2020 festival which will take place from the 1st to the 30th September.
Totally Thames, the festival celebrating the river at the centre of the city, is back for 2020 in September, with it being reimagined by having a new Totally Thames online hub with a rich programme of river and cultural content.
Given the current circumstances, the festival, now in its 24th year, has had to change its programme. However, it will still be bringing together artists and authors as well as mudlarks, anglers, kayakers, hikers
and environmentalists to celebrate the river through a combination of live and online performances.
Festival highlight Rivers of the World sees artists working remotely with over 2,000 13 and 14-year- old students from across the globe to create river-themed art. The artworks have been created by young people from London, Coventry, Peterborough, Halton, Warrington and Stockton-on-Tees inthe UK and from Ethiopia, Sudan, Tanzania, Lebanon, and India. Aïcha El Beloui led workshops in Morocco.
Talking about the news,Alistair Gale, Director of Corporate Affairs, Port of London Authority says, “At the PLA we want as many people as possible to treasure the Thames, which is why the Totally Thames programme is so
important. This year, perhaps more than ever, the opportunity to pause, reflect and enjoy this fantastic space in the heart of the city, either in person or online, has never been more important.”
