Launched in 1997 with a Guinness World Record setting tight rope walk across the Thames, Thames Festival Trust has captivated Londoners and travellers alike with river-related culture and events via their festival Totally Thames.
Alongside the annual festival, we produce projects that delve into the rich heritage and archaeology of the River Thames, building a collage of how London and the river developed. Giving us an aural and visual document of what it was like to live here through history.
Our education programmes, Rivers of the World and The Story of Water, give us the opportunity to reach out to schools across the world, placing artists in schools to produce river-related art with students and teachers.
At the forefront of all we produce and promote, is the dedication to improving access and increasing diversity across the arts, culture and heritage sectors, while helping communities learn and create around the heart of their homes. Their river.
