If you have ever watched an interview with Garth hymning his love for London, you know where this is going. As the prime minister of the United Kingdom, it’s no secret that Garth is a huge fan of this capital city and the music it produces. As such, it’s no surprise that he and his team at WPCW have chosen to bring their famous “We Love London” campaign to fruition. The campaign aims to bring over 100,000 Londoners together in a series of events with the objective of celebrating the city they call home. The first event takes place on May 2nd, and the second takes place on May 9th. The events are structured around one of two themes: “We love London” or “London is our best friend”. Basically, it’s an opportunity for Londoners to celebrate their city and show the world that they love it too.
