A festival celebrating the River Thames in Barking and Dagenham
Barking and Dagenham will come alive with a bumper programme of free arts and activities for all to enjoy. Immerse yourself in an extraordinary cardboard world, enjoy three performances from the world-famous Royal Opera House and James Wilton Dance, join us on a Silk River storytelling journey and Alice on her adventures in Wonderland, or sit back and enjoy the local craft, food and drink stalls.
There will be plenty of opportunities for community participation on the day too with local groups bringing their own making activities.
This year, ThamesFest runs over two days: day one will be at the Rivergate Centre (Saturday) and day two will be Silk River (Monday), Barking and Dagenham's part of a international arts walk relay.
Curated by local residents and Cultural Connectors from Creative Barking and Dagenham.
