Bring along decorated bicycles, helmets, and clothing.

Bike decoration stations on The High Street (Level 1 outside Royal Festival Hall) from 2pm till 4pm.

Floral Bicycle Parade starts at 4pm at the Southbank Centre Square doors to Royal Festival Hall.

Part of Story of London Festival, a series of performances and events in partnership with Museum of London and Mayor of London that remember community involvement in the Festival of Britain in 1951.

Many outer London boroughs took part with a wide variety of celebratory events. Local museums in five of the original participating boroughs - Dagenham, Brent, Haringey, Redbridge and Wandsworth - are hosting displays in their boroughs and recreating some of the activities that took place.
