GDIF 2022 | London’s free, annual outdoor performing arts festival 26 August-11 September 2022

26 AUG – 11 SEP

GDIF 2022 transformed the public spaces across London for 18 extraordinary days of free, accessible, and inclusive theatre and art. Through the programme of over 40 free events, we welcomed audiences of over 50,000 to the festival which this year explored the theme of common ground; shared experiences, connection, life and death, wonder, climate change, Islamophobia and solidarity with Ukraine.

“Bridging divides and celebrating unity defined this year’s eclectic programme of outdoor performances” – The Stage

“It opened with tears for Ukraine and closed with tears for our Queen yet still managed to be an uplifting celebration of community” – Greenwich Visitor
