South Bank is celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Festival of Britain. Normally I'm too preoccupied with work to pay much attention to what's going on outside, but last week it was lunch time so I decided to walk back from a meeting in the City and strolled along the South Bank where a whole host of events and installations are marking the event.
First thing to catch my attention is the beach that's been installed along the Thames, a few children had brought along buckets and spades.
There was even an interesting boat drawn up on the makeshift beach.
Up on the Festival Hall there was a giant fox which appeared to be made of straw.
All in all a nice distraction during my lunchtime stroll, and then back to work.
