There will be a market filled with local businesses within the artisan bicycle and accessories design circuit, as well as workshops, talks and demonstrations.

A makers mini-market will set up on Finsbury Avenue Square from 4 October for three days, which will feature design-led pop-up stalls from numerous independent designers. This is being organised by product designer Bethan Laura Wood.

There will also be a series of inspirational talks around Broadgate around design, culture and innovation.

London Design Festival runs from 16 September to 24 September.
