We're hiring! The City of London Festival is undergoing an organisational restructure, and a number of new roles have been created. Visit the Working at CoLF page for full information and application details...

We hope you enjoyed the City of London Festival 2014 (22 June - 17 July) - three and a half glorious weeks of the finest arts events, performances and concerts in the Square Mile.

Watch how much of a splash our giant Bowler Hat made in Paternoster Square this summer.
