This year London will be hosting the 11th London Design Festival, due to take place in September. First staged in 2003, the Festival line-up is made up of over 300 events and shows staged from around the world. With more than 300 exciting events and exhibitions, London Design Festival 2013 promises to showcase the best of global design.
This annual event sets to promote the city’s creativity and excellence by drawing in some of the country’s greatest educators and practitioners to help deliver what has been described as an ‘unmissable’ event.
From established businesses to entrepreneurs, London design festival has partnered up with businesses all over the nation to bring the best of the capital’s culture. For that reason, individuals will not have to worry about finding something to do as there will be plenty of programmes, seminars and workshops for everyone to get involved in. There is a broad range of activities on offer, and the best part is the majority of exhibitions are free to enter!
One of the many spectacular displays at the festival has to be the Endless Stair, “a visually and architecturally astonishing” piece and one of the highlights of the event this year. You can take a closer look at this magnificent creation on your visit to the renowned Tate Modern.
As the day draws to an end, you can finish by relaxing in our DUKES Bar with a wonderful martini (and we have plenty of stories about James Bond to tell…).
