The City of London Festival is an annual extravaganza of music, dance, art, film, poetry, family and participation events that takes place in the city's Square Mile.
The thought-provoking programme is rooted in three main themes: city walls, which connects the City of London with Derry-Londonderry and other historic walled cities from Utrecht to Jerusalem; conflict and resolution; and trees.
More than 100 free events, such as Family Day on Hampstead Heath which celebrates Northern Irish culture and heritage.
World concerts at St Paul's Cathedral.
Free lunchtime concerts presented by some of the finest young talent at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
Numerous walks, talks and debates that include Worlds in Collision, a two-day conference on the healing power of music in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorders resulting from conflict.
A pop-up mobile orchard with real and manufactured trees is taking root at a number of City locations throughout the festival. Passers-by can enjoy music, street theatre and dance at the mobile orchards.
