A slow silent march into the Tate Modern turbine hall, led by a woman on a white horse, was the culmination of a protest by more than 180 leading UK arts and culture projects declaring a climate emergency.
The marchers wore living grass coats grown by visual artists Ackroyd and Harvey.
Participants read out Letters To The Earth, writing submitted by the general public for a nationwide cultural action taking place on April 12.
The procession marched along Waterloo Bridge and took in the Southbank Centre, the National Theatre, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and the Tate Modern.
