LONDON, ENGLAND, August 12, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Taking place for the first time throughout September, 'Totally Thames' is an exciting new, month-long arts and cultural celebration of London's river, featuring over 100 river-related events along its entire 42 mile course through the capital. For those travelling to London for the festival which includes many free events it's possible to find a choice of cheap hotels in London a short walk from the river.
Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman will create an extraordinary new sculpture, his first UK commission, which will be situated in the River Thames at Nine Elms on the South Bank for the month of Totally Thames. Details remain a closely guarded secret until Tuesday 2nd September 2014 when the installation will be towed upriver from its build site to its end position at Nine Elms on the South Bank between Battersea and Vauxhall.
On Friday 5th and Saturday 6th September 2014 internationally renowned French artists Carabosse present 'Fire Garden,' a spectacular display of fire and light, and one of the last ever public events at Battersea Power Station before it closes for development.
Visitors can immerse themselves in 'The Thames SENSEation,' a free family event at Victoria Embankment Gardens on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th September 2014 which explores the sights, aromas, tastes, textures and sounds of London's bygone eras. This multi-sensory festival designed by the award-winning House of Gastrophonic in partnership with The Northbank.
The largest Tall Ship event in London for 25 years comes to Royal Greenwich from 5th to 9th September 2014.
