Totally Thames 2017

Totally Thames Festival this year is more packed with events than ever. There is a creative and diverse programme which includes pop-up performances, boating events, art installations, River clean-ups, live performances, talks, workshops and much more.

You can kick things off with "Thames Drawing Series #4" - a collaboration between artist Ros Burgin and boat builder Mark Edwards to create a scaled "map" of the river using salvaged wood from decommissioned boats that spent their lifetime on the river. 

There are also a series of talks, such as "Tales from the Ocean" - an informal storytelling evening with women sharing tales of their connection to the ocean. 

Discover a Roman Waterfront Residence as the remains of Billingsgate Roman House & Baths, once the riverside residence of a wealthy Londoner. 

There are art and photographic exhibitions too, such as "Working River" - which documents stories of working lives in London's boatyards over the past 60 years. 

Make sure you check out the Totally Thames Website and check out whats happening.
