The Big Festival

You have done The Big Half – now onto The Big Festival! This is a unique festival that embraces all that the wonderful city of London has to offer.

The Big Festival is the perfect place to soak up the community buzz and be a part of the celebrations as London’s local boroughs come together to show off their amazing assets. The Big Festival will bring together the best of the capital’s food, music, sport and exercise, and health and wellbeing.


Enjoy a well-earned meal from one of the many local traders, offering an array of the tastiest and healthiest meals from cultures across the world. Learn about food waste, sustainable living and how to achieve a healthy and affordable diet from the workshops taking place in the Food Demonstration tent.


Enjoy music from the best up-and-coming performers as they take to the Big Stage. There will be something for everyone, whether your vibe is African soul, Latin music or brass bands.

Sport & Exercise

Local sports groups will be hosting ‘come and try’ sessions in basketball, athletics and boxing throughout the day. For the more adventurous,  there will be the chance to have a go at wheelchair basketball, and yoga for those of you looking for a more serene experience. Don’t miss the New Balance area for further sporting fun.

Health & Wellbeing

A healthy mind is just as important as a healthy body, so make sure you visit to the wellbeing zone, where a host of fun and interactive sessions will be on offer from community health and education groups. There will be plenty for kids to do too, with educational games, a Ferris wheel and a maze to keep them active.
