Mayor’s Letter: November 2017
A big welcome to London this November
On 5th November we celebrate Bonfire Night, which marks Guy Fawkes’ ill-fated gunpowder plot on the Houses of Parliament in 1605. There are loads of spectacular firework events lined up – top displays include Battersea, Southwark and Victoria Park.
As a world capital of music and creativity, I’m delighted that for the first time in 21 years, the MTV EMAs return to London, featuring unforgettable events and culminating in the much-anticipated awards ceremony at SSE Arena Wembley on 12th November. During MTV Music Week, the city hosts top international music acts alongside visitors from around the world.
The festive season begins as Winter Wonderland returns to Hyde Park for six weeks. The festival is the perfect place to celebrate the run-up to Christmas – with rides, shops, bars and restaurants to enjoy. It’s near Oxford Street, the famous shopping district, where you can start your Christmas shopping early.
I hope you have a great time in our city!
Mayor of London
