Pop Up London festival launched for October half term

19th October 2021

Pop Up London is a free festival of family-friendly performances taking place across central London during October half-term (23 to 31 October 2021).

Part of the Mayor’s Let’s Do London campaign to encourage visitors back into the heart of our city and
support jobs, Pop Up London will see over 200 artists performing in public spaces including Trafalgar
Square, Spitalfields and Canary Wharf.

The capital’s rich cultural diversity will be celebrated with Brazilian drumming, Cantonese story-telling and Caribbean steelpans, alongside performances that explore themes of climate change, the digital age and gender stereotypes.

Delivered in partnership with Battersea Arts Centre and Found in Music, Pop Up London will support the capital’s creative freelancers who have been hit hard by the pandemic.
