Greenwich+Docklands International Festival on 21 June – 7 July
This is London’s leading outdoor theatre and performing arts festival. Founded in 1996, GDIF 2017 featured over 300 performances by dozens of national and international companies with more than 100,000 people attending shows in a range of public spaces in Royal Greenwich and East London. It is the flagship annual event produced by FESTIVAL.ORG, one of the UK’s most ambitious and prolific outdoor arts organisations which also produces the Mayor of London’s Liberty Festival and manages the Global Streets network amongst other projects.
GDIF is free for everyone to enjoy. Typically, a handful of performances are partially ticketed each year because of capacity constraints but even at these they guarantee some free tickets to those with limited access to the arts.

Blackheath Halls to reopen in the Autumn of 2018
Blackheath Halls is currently closed and is undergoing an exciting redevelopment scheme at present which will benefit both future audiences and performers.
They have been given an incredible gift in the form of most generous lead donations of £1.5m from The Hearn Foundation and £0.5m from Arts Council England, which will enable them to transform the Halls into a space worthy of the creative talents it hosts.
To fully realise their ambitions for the venue, they need to raise a further £1m and have launched their ‘Transform Blackheath Halls’ public fundraising campaign back in January.
There are several exciting opportunities for you to become a Supporter or Patron at a level of your choice or you can name a seat from £650. They very much hope that you will consider being part of the Transform Blackheath Halls campaign.
For more information on their current events see their listings page.
