Welcome to GDIF

London’s leading festival of free outdoor theatre and performing arts.

That’s a wrap on GDIF 2020!

The most challenging festival we’ve ever had to put together, it’s also been one of the most rewarding, with the programme responding creatively to and offering reflection on the impact of the pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the importance of the NHS and community togetherness.

We put on over 150 shows for around 20,000 socially distanced audience members, spread across 19 different locations in the Royal Borough of Greenwich and East London, working with 10 partners.

We had 120 volunteers and 50 participants who gave their time to support the festival team and make the audience experience safe and enjoyable for everyone.

As the first full live arts festival to take place in the UK after lockdown, we couldn’t have imagined a more memorable way to celebrate our 25th year of bringing outdoor arts to communities across London.
