Come and hear various choirs singing on the riverside over the course of the day. First up is a 600-strong children’s choir singing songs inspired by the maritime history of the Thames (1-2pm), then at 2.30pm it’s the turn of 800 or so grown-ups from choirs around the world, who, led by Roxane Smith and Michael Harper, will sing together to raise money and awareness for WaterAid. They’re followed by the Trad Academy Sea Shanty Choir at 4pm with 45 minutes of rousing sea shanties, and the whole thing culminates with a set at 5-5.45pm from the all-woman pop choir Lips, whose repertoire ranges from1950s girl-pop to garage and disco.
