The Totally Thames Festival
Totally Thames takes place over the month of September and brings the river to life via an exciting season of arts, cultural and river events throughout the 42-mile stretch of the Thames in London.
This year's Totally Thames will once again bring the river to life in a celebration of all things arts, cultural, river-related Thames. There are plenty of opportunities to get on and into the water, from paddle steamers to paddle boarding, cruising on a Tall Ship to wild swimming.
Beside the river, there's mudlarking on the foreshore and an open day at Tower Beach. Chances to get active include the 20k Thames Bridges Trek and the fishing, kayaking and boat trips at Tidefest, to the annual Source to Sea River Relay. The festival balances these with the more sedate pleasures of concerts in riverside churches, special events at Thameside attractions, a late night tryst at Chelsea Physic Garden, special offers at riverside restaurants, and a night of poetry celebrating wild swimming.
Date: Tuesday 01 to Wednesday 30 September 2015
Entry cost: Only some events are £0
