Mayor's Letter: June 2018

A big welcome to London this June

As summer begins, it's set to be a packed month. From Stormzy to Adele, The Clash to The Rolling Stones, London artists have left their mark on the music world. As part of Sounds Like London, June is a month of concerts celebrating grassroots music venues and shinning a light on female performers. Other highlights include The Cure's frontman Robert Smith's Meltdown festival at the Southbank Centre.
You're also invited to join the annual Eid festival in Trafalgar Square. We'll be celebrating with great sounds, artisan markets and - of course - a feast of incredible food. London is also home to one of the world's biggest art installations, when renowned artist Christo unveils an amazing display of 7,506 oil barrels on the Serpentine lake in Hyde Park. Best of all, its free. Meanwhile, you can enjoy the city's summer of sport with AEGON tennis at The Queen's Club, which sets the scene for the Wimbledon Championships in July.

However you spend your time in London, know that you're a welcome guest.

We hope you have a fantastic visit!

Sadiq Khan
Mayor of London
