The Festival is now in its fifth year and is a collaboration between Queen Mary University of London and over 40 local partner organisations, aiming to build connections across the borough.
The activities at the Festival of Communities are designed for local families to learn something new or try something different, and to provide an opportunity to meet and interact with people they haven’t met before.
The activities showcase the best of health, medical, science, engineering, humanities and social science projects and research from Queen Mary and local organisations and services in Tower Hamlets. These varied activities range from hands-on experiments, sharing stories and views, watching demonstrations and performances and trying out fun new things.
The Festival is a fantastic opportunity for people to come together to explore everything that makes Queen Mary and Tower Hamlets a great place and to share ideas for the future.— Peter McOwan, Principal’s Executive Dean for Public Engagement and Student Enterprise, Queen Mary University of London
