Greenwich + Docklands International Festival – Greenwich Fair

Audio Described in-house.

Greenwich’s much loved annual ‘festival within a festival’ is back! Family-friendly street arts, theatre, circus, installations and play will take over the grounds of the Old Royal Naval College and Cutty Sark Gardens on August Bank Holiday Sunday.

GDIF’s Greenwich Fair is inspired by the historic Fair at Greenwich, which was hugely popular up until 1852. Charles Dickens described how the Fair brought travelling shows and general mayhem and frivolity to Greenwich, with people from all walks of life flocking in to share a dose of escapism and entertainment.

There are many shows throughout the day. Visit the Access Tent on site at 12.30pm for on-the day advice with the festival’s Audio Description Manager.
