City of London FestivalFounded in 1962, the City of London Festival is a summer programme of music, visual arts, film, walks and talks. It takes place across several City of London venues, including St Paul's Cathedral, and outdoor spaces, and many of the events and activities are free (particularly if outdoor). This year pays homage to the former uniform of the City with a giant inflatable Bowler Hat. Popping up in Paternoster Square, next to St Paul's Cathedral, the Bowler Hat seats 212 audience members and will host more than 100 events, including children's theatre, cabaret, comedy and circus. An annual highlight of the festival is the children's parade which this year sees 1,500 children taking to the City's streets on Friday 27th June 2014.
