This multi-event, multi-venue, eight-day festival takes place across the capital to bring remarkable design both old and new to a vast London audience. The V&A and Somerset House will both be major landmarks in the line-up, hosting talks, events and several large-scale installations.

One highlight for this year will be a crazy golf course in Trafalgar Square designed by top British creatives Paul Smith, Mark Wallinger, Tom Dixon and Zaha Hadid. Other projects include Baboushka Boxes that reference London’s housing crisis in Notting Hill, a 20m moving metallic ribbon in the V&A’s Tapestry Gallery and a dynamic installation in the courtyard of the Black Cultural Archives.

Eight 'Design Districts' will offer their own line-up of events and exhibits which showcase local artists and creative industries. Brixton joins the list for the first time this year, with Bankside, Brompton, Chelsea, Clerkenwell, Islington, Queen's Park and Shoreditch all returning.
