Healing Together

Friday 10 September, 8.30-10:30pm & Saturday 11 September, 1-10pm

What to Expect: Sensory spectacle


Our final weekend offers a two day programme of street arts, performance, installation, dance and spectacle, celebrating community resilience, the environment and healing as we emerge from the pandemic. It will also symbolically reunite communities on both sides of the Thames – in Woolwich and North Woolwich, which until the 1960s were joined as the single Metropolitan Borough of Woolwich.

This unique cross-river programme features:

  • Reflection Gardens: evening fire installations on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 September
  • Healing Together: daytime festival programme on 11 September

Why not explore the programme on both sides of the Thames via the Woolwich Foot Tunnel or DLR?

Part of Newham Unlocked Festival – find out more.

Unfortunately, we will be unable to present After the Storm by Walk the Plank this Saturday in the way we had planned, due to industrial action. Whilst we will not be presenting a spectacle on the Woolwich Ferry, the specially created soundtrack will be incorporated into Walk the Plank’s Reflection Gardens.

Sorry, this event has already happened!
