Opening on midsummer's day, the Greenwich+Docklands International Festival returns with a rollercoaster of theatre, dance and spectacle – all for free!
London's largest festival of outdoor theatre, the Greenwich+Docklands International Festival brings the best UK and international performers to streets, parks and public spaces in and around Greenwich.
The festival is organised by Bradley Hemmings, Co-Artistic Director of last year's Paralympic Opening Ceremony, and some of the outstanding performers from the ceremony will return to London this summer.
