This annual two-day “festival within a festival” brings together UK and international street arts companies, taking to the streets and public spaces of Greenwich Town Centre.
This year’s programme has a serious focus on “fun”, with productions including the Dutch company Babok’s PolderCoaster, a hilarious reimagining of a fairground ride; Tickertape Parade’s Fantabulosa, a fantastical queer-positive pop-up world of imagination, storytelling and glitter where boundaries are forgotten and everyone and anyone can be whoever they want to be; and Wild ‘n’ Beets’ Buck a Brenda, an uproarious reinvention of the vintage game ‘Buckaroo’ hosted on cowboy-themed mobility scooters.
Full Greenwich Fair programme to be announced.
“You only have to visit Greenwich Fair… to see the hunger for different kinds of experience and the pleasure that street arts can bring. It’s written all over people’s faces.”
