Event GroupFestivals and commercial events

Victoria Park is home to a few larger festivals and events such as All Points East.  They also organise a free, four day community festival called In The Neighbourhood.  These events are organised by the festivals and events team and we would like to assure you that we’ll be working hard to keep noise and disruption to local residents to a minimum.

More information about upcoming festivals, including residents and park users information (road closures, useful contact numbers). or contact the events team at festivalsandevents@towerhamlets.gov.uk.
