  • Public realm with wayfinding & signage, planters on the high street and artwork to the sides of housing blocks
  • Relaunch the Market Square with seating, lighting, planting and equipment for the market traders

Cancelled: Greenwich and Docklands International Festival (GDIF) 9 and 10 September 2022

Tower Hamlets Council and GDIF have taken the decision to cancel performances of “Roll Play” by Simple Cypher at Globe Town Market Square and “Unfurl” by Air Giants at Bethnal Green Gardens (both on 9 and 10 September) following the announcement of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on 08.09.2022.

We wish to express our condolences to the Royal Family and all of those personally affected by her passing and are sorry for any disappointment caused by these cancellations at this time of public mourning.
