Totally Thames 202215th August 2022 / Posted by Rachael Aldridge
More events have been announced for Totally Thames 2022, the annual celebration of London’s river!
The festival will include the Thames’s first illuminated night-time flotilla, the return of the popular Kids’ Choir and Sing for Water, and a fascinating exploration of the heritage of Trinity Buoy Wharf and the Leamouth Peninsula. Celebrations include an impressive illuminated flotilla procession from Chelsea to Tower Bridge. All the participating crews are raising funds for the RNLI, supporting the construction of a new lifeboat station at Waterloo Bridge.
River of Hope is an installation of 200 silk flags which will be exhibited from 24th September – 30th October at the National Maritime Museum. The flags were created by young people from across the UK and the Commonwealth, with the designs inspired by their hopes and aspirations for a greener, more sustainable future. The flags were paraded along The Mall as part of the Platinum Jubilee Pageant in June.
