A rare sight will attend the Thames Festival on the evening of Saturday 14th September. Lightship 95 which is currently based at Trinity Buoy Wharf as a recording studio will be towed up river through Tower Bridge and stem the tide whilst carrying out a light show. The tugs General VIII and Tilly will leave Trinity Buoy Wharf with Lightship 95 at around 1845hrs and head up river.
The bridge lift times are 1945 up (shared with Vic 96 and Kent) and 2030 down (also shared)
