Friday 28th of August 2015
Pick up your Easirent hire car from our London Stansted Airport depot and head into the city centre for a month of celebrations. September is Thames celebration month, and from 1 – 30 September there will be a 30 day programme of river inspired events that will be fun for all the family.
Located along the banks of the River Thames, the Totally Thames festival incorporates arts, music, community festivals, colourful regattas, river rallies and races, archaeology, exploration, educational and environmental activities.
Fans of sailing won’t want to miss The Clipper 2015 – 2016 Round the World Race start on Sunday 30 August, where Tower Bridge will be raised specially for the occasion in order to bid farewell to the 70 race yachts as they set sail on their 40,000 mile adventure at sea.
Tall ships will be returning to Royal Greenwich for five days, and spectators will be waving them off on the 31 August 2015 accompanied by plenty of food and drink stalls, which will be showcasing local produce throughout the event. Royal Greenwich can be easily reached from our London Stansted Airport depot and is just a 35 mile drive in your Easirent hire car.
September is music month, with an array of performers celebrating the River Thames including choirs and choral folk songs in many of the riverside venues.
Hop in your Easirent hire car and take the M11 from our Stansted Airport depot towards Southwark Cathedral which will also be taking part in the Totally Thames celebrations through a number of concerts during the month of September. The Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir will be in attendance with a Thames inspired repertoire on 1 September 2015; there will also be organ recitals on 14 September and 21 September, so make sure you have the dates in your diary.
