Bankside Design District




Late night opening:

Bankside Design District promises to excite and engage audiences with a programme of events, activities, workshops and talks, as well as a very special international pop-up.

Now in its third year, the Bankside Design District is back with an even bigger and better line-up.

The Bankside Design District is all about getting hands-on, and there is a strong theme of typography in this year’s programme. Font fans and type geeks will love the lettering workshops with US sign painting legend Mike Meyer, as well as lots more in store from Better Letters. There will be a secret garden at citizenM, product launches and parties at designer-maker enclave Oxo Tower Wharf and a brand new commission in the series of ‘Colourful Crossings’ installations. Don’t miss the Bankside Design District late night on Wednesday 20 September.

Putting south London design on the map, the district runs east to west along the Thames from Borough Market to Oxo Tower Wharf. The Bankside Design District celebrates the creative diversity of this riverside destination, home to galleries, creative agencies, design studios and architect’s practices.


The Bankside Design District is coordinated by Better Bankside, a partnership of over 650 businesses in Bankside, London SE1. Better Bankside, a Business Improvement District, exists to make Bankside a better place to live, work and visit. A Business Improvement District (BID) is an independent, business-owned and led company, which seeks to improve a given location for commercial activity.
