Mayor’s Letter: November 2019

Welcome to London this November

Begin your adventure by exploring Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh at the Saatchi Gallery (from 2 Nov), which marks the centenary of the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb.

On 3 Nov, Trafalgar Square hosts Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, with an exciting line-up of music and dance.

Cheer on the Lionesses, who return to Wembley Stadium on 9 Nov for the first time since the Women’s Football World Cup.

For those who want to experience a modern-day picture of life in London, I recommend Oscar-winning director and artist Steve McQueen’s Year 3 project at Tate Britain. This is a refreshing take on the traditional school photo, as he brings together 1,500 London primary-school class photographs in one exhibition.

Finally, if you’re here from 21 Nov, enjoy Hyde Park Winter Wonderland. This is London’s biggest Christmas market, with rides, shows, ice sculptures and attractions, too.

However you spend your time, have a wonderful experience

Sadiq Khan
Mayor of London
