Question

Last month I attended Global Friendship Day in Tottenham which was a successful and warming event.  I have been contacted by Friendship Global who organised the day to see whether you would be willing to establish a Friendship Memorial in London for everyone to visit and pay their respects? This will serve as a landmark in London which will attract tourists to London and strengthen communities.

We currently do not have plans to establish a Friendship Memorial in London. However, the GLA does fund a range of free festivals throughout the year which celebrate London's global relationships e.g. Chinese New Year, St. Patrick's Day, Eid, Shubbak, St. George's Day and Pride.
