Festival celebrates the heritage and future of Royal Docks
Celebrate the future and amazing history of the Royal Docks, including our stunning Royal Albert Wharf community, as London Festival of Architecture comes to the area this month.
There is a varied programme of events throughout June encompassing guided walks, a campaign to promote empathy, performance art, exhibitions and delicious food from a Masterchef finalist.
Notting Hill Genesis are hosting some of these stunning events at RAW Labs in Royal Albert Wharf, a series of art studios created in conjunction with Bow Arts.
Events we’re hosting include:
- All Along the Dock Edge, RAW Labs, all month – a self-guided walk curated by architect and local resident Anna Gibb, which explores the fascinating history of the industrial docks through to the future of its planned developments. Under three miles in length, it follows the northern edge of the docks from Royal Victoria to Royal Albert Wharf, ending where the docks meet the Thames. It runs throughout the whole month.
- Campaign for Empathy Rally, RAW Labs, Saturday 8 June – the world’s first community-centred campaign to promote empathy during a time of Brexit uncertainty has been running in Newham since March. It is led by London-based Finnish empathy artist and designer Enni-Kukka Tuomala. The rally aims to reclaim the public realm as a space for empathy, community and connection.
- Chthonic, RAW Labs, Friday 21 June – London-born performance artist Thomas John Bacon (TJB) invites you to explore the boundary of time on the longest day of the year as part of a fascinating installation.
- Lockside Kitchen Supper Club, Lockside Kitchen, Saturday 22 June – Royal Albert Wharf’s Lockside Kitchen is hosting a vibrant Supper Club with stunning views over the Royal Docks paired with creative and delicious food from Masterchef 2017 runner-up Steve Kielty.
