Celebrate the Thames in London Bridge this September
Totally Thames provides an annual season of unique, diverse and accessible arts and culture throughout the month with activities taking place on, beneath, and along the River Thames. The 30-day programme runs the 42-mile stretch of the Thames through working collaboratively with artists, local communities, river interest organisations and businesses.
