London Design Festival
London Design Festival was launched by Sir John Sorrell CBE and Ben Evans CBE in 2003. Building on London’s existing design activity, their concept was to create an annual event that would promote the city’s creativity, drawing in the country’s greatest thinkers, practitioners, retailers and educators to a deliver an unmissable celebration of design. The launch of the first Festival took place at Bloomberg on 25 March 2003, with a huge show of support from design, education, government and London organisations. 18 years later, this vision remains ever strong.
London Design Museum
The Design Museum is the only place in the UK where the design industry, education and the public can come together to change the way people think about themselves and the future. The museum is a registered charity founded in 1989. It relocated to a spectacular modern landmark in Kensington in 2016 and has welcomed over 2.1 million visitors since re-opening.
