Summer By The River Festival

5:00pm – 10:00pm

Summer By The River Festival 2023 will be held across three locations – The Scoop, Hay’s Galleria and The Pier.

The Scoop will host a vibrant mix of music, film, theatre and pop-up events all summer long. Enjoy free film screenings every Tuesday evening, including Top Gun: Maverick, Elvis, Matilda and more, as the sun sets over the Thames. Thursday night is new music night at The Scoop, showcasing the hottest up-and-coming talent, while if you missed out on tickets to Wimbledon or Royal Ascot you can catch all the action from the summer’s biggest fixtures in London Bridge City.

Overlooking the Thames with stunning views of the City, pop-up bars at the Riverside Terrace and Riverside Pavilion are serving up the hottest food and drink in town. Choose from fried chicken burgers from Honey Honey Chicken or pizza made-to-order by Bad Boy Pizza, before treating yourself to ice cream from Nice Day.

Whether it’s date night, mates night or you’re just looking for somewhere to sit and watch the world go by, the bars have live DJ sets for the perfect soundtrack to your summer.

Don’t forget to rock up early to guarantee a spot for events and performances. Seats at the Scoop are stone steps, so maybe pack something to sit on.
