Totally Thames is an exciting month-long celebration of London’s river featuring arts, music and community festivals; colourful regattas; thrilling river races; foreshore archaeology, exploration, environmental and educational activities; as well as river-linked activities in London’s 17 riverside boroughs.

The inaugural Totally Thames was enjoyed by over 2.7 million people, who attended over 170 river related events throughout the month of September.

A collaborative effort, more than 70 partners help programme, fund and promote Totally Thames and in 2014 the London-wide marketing and PR campaign achieved 500+ media breaks reaching 124 million people.

Totally Thames aims, by 2016, to be the biggest multi-faceted season of river events in the world.
