Mayor's Letter: January 2018
A big welcome to London this January
Forget the January blues – you’re visiting the capital at one of the brightest and most exciting times of the year, as we welcome the magical Lumiere London light festival. More than 40 UK and international artists reimagine London’s iconic architecture and streets, transforming the city into a dazzling nocturnal art exhibition – and it’s all free to visit. London is a world leader for shopping with its eclectic mix of styles, shops and brands around every corner.
For something British, visit the world-famous West End department stores or, for a one-off vintage buy, take a trip to one of our much-loved street markets. Basketball returns to The O2, with the highly anticipated NBA London Game 2018, which will see the Philadelphia 76ers face the Boston Celtics in a regular-season game.
Visitors to the city will also have the opportunity to see the amazing Cirque du Soleil in action as it returns to the Royal Albert Hall, bringing its energetic and colourful OVO show to the UK for the first time.
Mayor of London
