What to Expect: Great for Kids | Participate | Speech free
GDIF and our partners have taken the decision to cancel the following GDIF 2022 events following the announcement of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II yesterday evening:
• Charon by Peter Hudson with Building 180 and Les Machines de l’Île in Royal Docks
• Relaxerette by Arjan Kruidhof, Lân Fan Taal & Explore the North in Rathbone Market
• Roll Play by Simple Cypher in Globe Town Market Square
• Unfurl by Air Giants and Air Bubs by Bubble Club in Bethnal Green Gardens
• Dancing City across the Canary Wharf Estate
As a creative organisation with a civic focus, we work with dozens of public and private sector partners each year and these decisions to cancel have been taken jointly with them at this time of national mourning.
In accordance with the wishes of the Royal Household and in line with ongoing theatre performances across the country, we are continuing with the planned presentation of more reflective theatre productions. Performances of Peaceophobia at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Multi-Storey Car Park and Final Farewell at Island Gardens will therefore go ahead as planned.
We wish to express our condolences to the Royal Family and all those affected by Her Majesty’s passing and are sorry for any disappointment caused by these cancellations at this time of shared sadness.
A garden like no other as nature, art and technology combine to create something spectacular.
This beautiful installation celebrates the wonder and intelligence of nature’s designs. It’s a place where the plants know that you have come to visit and reach out to connect. Light, colour and sound combine with cutting-edge soft robotics, to create an enchanting and ever-changing dreamscape.
Can I bring my pet?
Unfortunately due to health and safety regulations pets are not allowed at GDIF events, with the exception of registered service animals.
Can I arrive later than 8pm?
Yes – the event starts at 8pm but you can come any time before last entry at 10pm and stay for as little or as long as you like. The performance is ‘rolling’ and does not have a fixed start time.
How do I get to Unfurl?
