Photo London was created to give London an international photography event befitting the city’s status as a global cultural capital. Now in its third edition, Photo London has established itself as a world-class photography fair and as a catalyst for London’s dynamic photography community. From the capital’s major museums, to its auction houses, galleries large and small, right into the burgeoning creative communities in the East End and South London, Photo London harnesses the city’s outstanding creative talent and brings together the world’s leading photographers, curators, exhibitors, dealers and the public to celebrate photography, the medium of our time.

Open Senses Festival
Open Senses is a festival for every woman, man and child to hear, see, feel and experience – the very first of its kind. The festival (19-21 May) positions London as the world-leading centre of excellence in sensory practice. The festival invites people to come and open their noses, tastebuds, and skin to the world; to notice and savour the natural, physical environment around them. Sensory practice not only encourages accessibility and inclusivity, but champions communication free of prejudice as it's not dependent on language. Sensory practice builds deep connections between people and their environments. Open Senses will showcase sensory practice as a powerful tool to evoke true human emotion and create warm, lasting memories.
