If you happen to be in London in June, do not miss the opportunity to visit the Greenwich + Docklands International Festival—a real extravaganza of performances, circus tricks, and dance arranged in the southeastern London districts of Greenwich and Docklands.
This large-scale event unites hundreds of national and international masters of theatre, dance, and street performers and offers a rich cultural program at open and closed concert venues. Live 3D presentations, street art, pop art, classics, alternative art, and comedy stand-up can all be found here—a little something for everyone!
The Greenwich and Docklands International Festival also features a number of special events, like Dancing City, a series of outdoor dance taking place at Canary Wharf's streets, parks and riverside. Other highlights include hundreds of pigeons flying over the Thames with small LED lights attached to their bodies.
Festival of Street Art Greenwich + Docklands is probably the largest outdoor festival of London's summer. Most events are free and suitable for the whole family. The atmospheric riverside near Bazalgette Pumping Station in Thamesmead or the historic surroundings of the Royal Arsenal Woolwich - this festival definitely helps to discover London from an unusual angle.
