Festival of Communities

Living and learning together in Tower Hamlets

Saturday 20 - Sunday 21 May 2017

The Tower Hamlets Festival of Communities explores living and learning across our borough, packed with family friendly activities and events.

The Festival of Communities is back and we are looking for QMUL staff, students and community organisations to get involved and share activities with people living and working in Tower Hamlets.

In 2016, the first Festival of Communities brought together over 3,000 local residents to explore 'life', living and learning together in Tower Hamlets. We held fun-days and fringe events packed with interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities, walking tours and more, showcasing the very best of health, medical, science, engineering, humanities and social science projects from Tower Hamlets organisations and Queen Mary University of London.

This year the festival is back, taking place across one weekend in Stepney Green Park and Queen Mary University of London and filled with new and returning activities. Find out more about what took place in 2016 and find out how to get involved in the festival on the weekend of 20 and 21 May 2017.
