London Design Festival September 19-24, 2009

The London Design Festival is an annual event established in 2003 to celebrate and promote London as the creative capital of the world. This year it is being held from September 19-24, 2009.

The Festival provides a platform for the creative talent at work and creates a unique opportunity to visit over 200 specific events and activities reflecting the diversity of world-class design talent in the capital.

The London Design Festival is the UK’s biggest annual celebration of design and reflects London’s status as the world creative hub. It is made up of the widest possible range of design disciplines, all of who prosper in the city. These new ideas and activities make each Festival dynamic, different and uniquely London. Supported by government, the design sector, and leading businesses, the Festival offers a platform for the best design talent.

The Festival supports emerging talent that reflects London’s diverse influences. The Festival works with national museums, retailers, universities, trade shows, magazines, international design businesses and individual designers.

The Festival works year-round with key London venues and spaces such as Trafalgar Square, Southbank Centre, the V&A (Victoria and Albert Museum) (right) and Somerset House to program engaging design-related content that reflects London’s diverse design story, and makes it a global destination for new ideas and talent.
