Night of Festivals was a series of fabulous weekends filled with
vibrant, provocative and entertaining outdoor arts, carnival, live music, creative arts and cultural events which “celebrated the values of freedom and democracy through great art”.
The Festival ‘popped-up’ in Nottingham, Leicester, Barking, Slough, Boston (Lincs), Lincoln and London. In 2012 Night of Festivals was part of the London Festival and Cultural Olympiad to mark the London 2012 Olympics. It has been a regular annual feature to animate the centre of Hounslow and in 2016 and 2018 graced the South Bank in London, using the iconic sites adjacent to Tower Bridge and in Bernie Spain Gardens near the OXO Tower building and Southbank centre.
