London's calendar has always been full of public events. These range from large scale annual events and one-off festivals, for which thousands of Londoners take to the streets, to smaller exhibitions held at a variety of specific venues. Transport companies have always taken the opportunity to promote travel to such events through their posters. On public holidays, when there were no scheduled events to promote, posters encouraged Londoners to travel out into the countryside or to explore the city.

Posters were often issued to mark significant anniversaries in the history of London's transport. These include the opening of Underground lines and stations, as well as the start of London bus services. Occasionally, other historical anniversaries were remembered in posters, such as the Fire of London. From the late 1950s to the mid 1970s, centenary posters were issued annually to commemorate the lives of interesting people associated with London.
