London’s spectacular free outdoor Greenwich + Docklands International Festival is back for 2023.

The free line-up once again features the sort of spectacular installations that have become its hallmark since the festivals inception, notably ‘Cygnus’ by Denis Bivour and Florian Giefer, which will see illuminated animatronic swans fill the Thames at the Royal Docks (Aug 31-Sep 3).

Other highlights include festival opener ‘Open Lines’ (Aug 25), a stunning tight-rope act General Gordon Square, Woolwich; ‘Sliding Slope’ (Sep 2 and 3), a dance piece performed on the roof of a submerged house; and the return of GDIF regulars Greenwich Fair (a big Greenwich-wide family fun day on Aug 26) and Dancing City (two days of dance shows in The City, Sep 9 and 10).There are a whole host of installations and performances to enjoy throughout August and September, to find out more about the festival program visit the link below.
