Totally Thames Festival 2017

This year’s Totally Thames Festival is soon to be upon us – a celebration of all things Thames! Never being ones to miss out on a good thing, Thames Rockets have once again dived in ‘nose first’ for this year’s festivities.

 

The festival has been an annual event since 2014, with each year growing bigger, better and faster than the previous. Throughout the month of September you are invited to take part in activities, events, lectures, gigs and trips (to name but a few!) to learn more about the greatest asset the UK has, the mighty river Thames!

 

Every year Thames Rockets have been supporting the festival in the way that only we can – with a special one-off blast specifically partnered with Totally Thames. Our ‘Totally Thames Blast‘ treats you to a 15 minute thrill ride with throttles down and no holds barred! Step aboard at St Katharine Pier in the shadow of Tower Bridge with the Thames lapping beneath you, and embark on an all-speed adrenaline pumped ride that brings you and the Thames into the 21st century!

 

Our trademark Thames Rockets soundtrack accompanies your adventure, along with our top notch guides and skippers on hand to ensure you make the most of the river during the festival.

 

Now a staple of the Totally Thames itinerary, Thames Rockets provides just one of many things to do on and around the river during September. Poets, musicians, artists, archaeologists, performers and comedians contribute to a huge variety of entertainment. Our highlights include the Classic Boat Festival, the Bascule Chamber Concerts and Firing on the Foreshore.

 

Running from the 1st – 30th September there really is something for everyone this year.

 

You can find out all about the festival on the Totally Thames 2017 website. What are you waiting for? Come and celebrate the river 21st century style!
