There is no better place to pause, breathe and ease the soul than being on or by the Thames. This year’s competition draws on the experience of the last few months and we hope will draw people to the calming waters of the river, both to pause and reflect, while they seek inspiration to capture the river as it unlocks.
Adrian Evans, Director, Thames Festival Trust

This year’s events have put a premium on family time, the outdoors and reconnecting with nature. As we approach the heart of the summer, now is the time to bring those three themes together, on the Thames. We’d love people to share with us their view of our, post lockdown river as they venture along the riverbank, and afloat again, to enjoy the unique vistas of the Thames Unlocked.
Alistair Gale, Director of Corporate Affairs, Port of London Authority
