A 2021 summer events programme dubbed Meet Me At the Pier has got under way on Royal Wharf’s beautifully landscaped 1km riverside stretch between Lyle Park and Thames Barrier Park, just south of Royal Victoria Dock in East London. Running now until end of September, the activities offers family fun, free things to do, live music and much more.
The main event in the Riverscape Pop Up, a riverside bar and terrace that’s open from 11am to 8.30pm until 26 September. The pop-up’s menu extends from morning coffee through to Aperol spritzes, small batch beer from Hackney’s Five Points Brewery, sustainable British wine and other local bites to eat, including Brick Lane bagels. There will be live acoustic music on Thursday and Friday nights at 6pm, helpfully coinciding with happy hour, where all F&B is 20% off (between 5pm – 6pm).
The Royal Wharf park will come to life with feel-good summer festival vibes with its own Summer Fete between 11am to 6pm. The all-day fete will be a fun day out for all the family - with jumbo garden games, live acoustic music, face painters, a magician and balloon modellers, alongside a range of gastronomy food vendors. The fete will also showcase the wealth of locally-based talent, with community artists displaying their artwork for sale, and businesses offering on-the-go treatments; whether that be a quick doggie groom or a manicure! For those seeking a healthy start to the day, personal trainer Michael Baah will be hosting a HITT workout, and One Element will be holding a running session, both at 10am.
For those keen to pick up a selection of locally sourced produce, the farmers market between 11am – 3pm will continue every second Sunday of the month located in the heart of Royal Wharf - with the next one on 12 September. Then every last Friday of the month, Royal Wharf will continue to host Street Food Fridays, which hosts an international line-up of food vendor between 3pm – 9pm - with the next ones on 27 August and 24 September.
A series of regular Thursday Lates will also give visitors a chance to meet our team in the Riverscape Sales Gallery, enjoy a glass of something cool and refreshing, and discover Riverscape in more detail.
