Presented By Walk the Plank

Reflection Gardens

Part of Healing Together

Friday 10 September, 8.30pm-10.30pm & Saturday 11 September, 8.30pm-10pm

What to expect: On the Move, Sensory spectacle, Speech Free

Free

See both sides of the Thames light up at dusk in this multi-sensory experience, bringing together light, sound and fire effects, all meticulously integrated into the riverside landscape. As we emerge from the pandemic, Walk the Plank’s cross-river installation is designed to provide space for reflection within an atmosphere of hope and healing, whilst evoking a spirit of community resilience which characterises life in both Woolwich and North Woolwich.


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!
