Mayor's Thames festival 2011

The Mayor's Thames festival is a free multicultural celebration of London and the river Thames that succeeds in promoting environmental awareness and community spirit. Held over the weekend of the 10th & 11th September, Sorazora were pleased to participate in the festivities that spanned the South bank from the London Eye to Tower Bridge.

This was out third year to exhibit our range of natural fibres and natural dyes at the Thames festival and our second to be exhibiting in front of two of London's historical landmarks. The Tower of London sat across the river with Tower Bridge connecting it to the South bank.

Joji Hirota and his world-renowned Taiko drumming ensemble performed at More London's The Scoop on the Sunday to a packed crowd. A wide range of performances kept people entertained throughout the weekend at this free event. For more information about Mr Hirota, please follow the following link to his website.

The weather was mostly good for this part of the world and just brief spells of rain made an appearance on the Sunday. The resulting rainbow was ample compensation for the day's drizzle.
