Each summer the City of London Festival brings the City's unique buildings and outdoor spaces to life with an extensive artistic programme of music, visual arts, film, walks and talks, much of it free to the public.
Inaugurated in 1962 to revitalise the cultural life of the City it has established itself as one of the UK's leading arts events. The Festival entertains all those that live, work and visit this special location with unique events and world-class artists in beautiful surroundings. Discover the Festival, uncover the City.
In 2010 the City of London Festival will resonate with the distinctive sounds of music from the Portuguese-speaking world, get the Square Mile buzzing with bees and beehives and celebrate the 200th birthday of Chopin.
2010 Festival Dates: 21 June - 6 August 2010
