Events

We could not be more proud of our borough. It's full of life, culture and diversity and that is never more clear than at our events. They're a chance for our community to come together; to share, improve and enjoy.

Whether you're looking for something for the little ones, an inexpensive way to get out of the house or to meet like minded people, we think you'll find something you'll like. 

Interested in the Tower Hamlets arts scene? We've got a whole website for that. 

You can also get all of the latest events news by signing up to our newsletter or following us on social media.

Get involved

If you have an event in the borough that you'd like to share, submit it to us.
