City of London Festival

WHAT: One of London’s most immersive cultural festivals returns, with its public pianos popping up in parks and squares all over the capital. Performances and installations will be taking place at random locations – if you’re lucky, you might even catch a group of didgeridoo players on Tower and Southwark bridges.

WHEN: June 26-July 16

DO IT BECAUSE: There’s ample opportunity to buy a ticket to something and attend a performance, but the real joy of this festival is the way it spills over to provide an unexpected soundtrack amid London’s everyday hustle and bustle.
