All Points East In The Neighbourhood returns to London’s Victoria Park this summer for an amazing four-day programme of the biggest and best summer activities and entertainment for all ages – all of which you can enjoy for free!  

The free programme, in collaboration with the council, the local community and local organisations, takes place between two massive weekends of music from headliners including Gorillaz, Chemical Brothers, Kraftwerk, Tame Impala, The National, Disclosure and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

In The NBHD gets the bank holiday vibes started early from Sunday 21st August - Wednesday 24th August, making it the perfect destination for families and fun-loving Londoners. This summer, In The NBHD have partnered with more local organisations than ever before to put on a jam-packed week of entertainment, including a Walkabout Entertainment throughout the event, ensuring everyone is immersed in the delight that is In The NBHD.

Lutfur Rahman, Mayor of Tower Hamlets, said: “Tower Hamlets is a borough full of energy, and I am delighted that All Points East is returning to our award-winning Victoria Park this year. Our agreement with AEG, the event organisers, ensures that the local community benefits from a programme of free activities. In the Neighbourhood is an opportunity to nurture and showcase local talent, support creatives and provide families with a host of free activities. I look forward to showcasing our borough at its best and welcoming families to one of London’s greatest festivals.”

The Outdoor Cinema is back with a fantastic line-up once again, pleasing both young and old alike. Movies include children’s favourites (The Incredibles, Spiderman - No Way Home), 80s classics (Back To The Future, Dirty Dancing), musicals (Mamma Mia) and new releases (The Bad Guys).
