Canary Wharf London

Culture for the community

From the start, we’ve known that culture has the power to transform a neighbourhood – which is why we’ve made it one of our top priorities.

Culture makes a place inviting. It sparks curiosity, starts conversations and knits a community together. We curate a range of events for all ages, from educational classes and workshops, to exhibitions; comedy and dance performances to music, theatre and sport – there’s so much going on.

Our inclusive programme reflects our diversity. We encourage you to get involved and take it all in, because culture is for everyone.

 

Canary wharf

All the Wharf’s a stage

Whether it’s cheering from the side-lines at the Squash Classic or seeing Macbeth brought to life on stage, laughing uncontrollably at an intimate comedy night or getting involved with a community performance, let our culture line-up move you.

Our events take place throughout Canary Wharf. From impromptu performances in the Crossrail Place Roof Garden to large scale events in our parks and squares. We hold events in partnership with some of the world’s leading cultural institutions including the Royal Opera House, Royal Shakespeare Company, BBC and BFI alongside events showcasing the talent of local groups as part of our community-led initiatives.
Whatever you’re in the mood for, we’ve got just the ticket.
