A new arts festival is coming to Canary Wharf this summer Festival14. Running from Thursday 21 to Sunday 24 July, revellers will be greeted with a huge line up of music, theatre, comedy, dance and children’s activities.
Most of the acts will be free to attend and will transform the Wharf’s numerous parks, plazas and open spaces. The full programme will be announced at the start of June.
Music fans should head to Canada Square Park where the event’s main stage will offer up a diverse programme of free music including new and emerging talents, world famous DJs, classical music, jazz and soul artists and a gospel choir.
The Festival14 music will continue at Jubilee Park where some of the capital’s best busking talent will be playing live, as part of Canary Wharf’s partnership with Busk in London.
Those looking for some theatre will find that Westferry Circus has been transformed into an intimate outdoor theatre featuring Shakespearean plays, evening comedy and a family rave – while cabaret, comedy and storytelling can be found at Crossrail Place Roof Garden.
There will be a street food market running daily on Montgomery Square, offering a range of delicious dishes from around the world.
Most of the events are free to attend on a first come first served basis but some events will be ticketed.
