Allens Hire Ask Are You Ready for all the Fun of the Mayor’s Thames Festival?

23 Jul 14 By: Lene McGuinness

We’re only in July but preparations are well under way for the annual Mayor’s Thames Festival in London. This 10 day spectacle is bolstered by the month long celebration Totally Thames. That’s why we’re asking “what are you doing to celebrate the occasion”?


Rounding off what is set to be another fantastic summer is the Mayor’s Thames Festival. The event takes place from Thursday September 4 to Sunday September 14, and features a number of firsts and record breaking feats. This includes the Thames’ first floating art fair and the river’s biggest ever race.


More than 300 boats will take part in the race, but many thousands of people from London and beyond will be celebrating the historic river Thames in their own way throughout September.

Totally Thames is 30 day-long festival of art, culture and enjoyment spanning all 42 miles of the river and comprising more than 100 events. From live music and newly unveiled sculptures to archaeology sessions on the banks of the river, so many fun and exciting things are happening throughout September to celebrate London’s river.

As the capital’s premier catering equipment and furniture hire specialists, we will be busy throughout September, with indoor and outdoor events throughout the capital and the south of England.
