A free outdoor performing arts festival across the Greenwich and Docklands area with a programme of theatre, dance and street arts. The annual event is committed to diversity and has commissioned work by artists with disabilities and from diverse backgrounds.

This year’s programme includes Fly By Night – a formation of trained pigeons, sound installation A Journey Of Our Own, Windrush 492 – an installation with a soundscape written by acclaimed Greenwich playwright Roy Williams and a pedal-powered musical called Bicycle Boy.

Some events will be ticketed, and are not free, so check the programme for full details, but if Korean dance troupes, secret dance performances, feats of strength and massive colour wheels pique your curiosity then head down to south-east London.
