In just over three weeks from now, the biggest annual design spectacle in the UK kicks off. London Design Festival 2018 gets underway on 15 September and lasts until the 23rd. Now in its 16th year, the festival also celebrates 10 years at the V&A as its base.
In 2017, the Festival welcomed a record-breaking 450,000 individual visitors from over 75 countries. These visitors contributed to an overall 991,000 visits to London Design Festival events with 150,000 people passing through Broadgate each day.
Dr Tristram Hunt, Director of the V&A says: “This year’s programme is bigger and more ambitious than ever, and presents a unique opportunity for leading designers to engage with and respond to the V&A’s world-class collections of art, design and performance. London Design Festival occupies a vital role in London’s thriving design sector, reaffirming London’s position as the world’s leading global design capitals.”
