Welcome to the Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park
Shuffle-ing towards new home for the Friends
The Friends and Shuffle Festival are hoping to bring to life our historic lodge and build an exciting new heart for
In the summer of 2014, Shuffle Festival relocated to Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park and used the historic lodge as their base - opening a café/bar area for the festival duration. This proved a huge success with local people and the hope of opening it up permanently was born. By Summer 2015, we hope to have it open for all to use…. by request!
London Borough of Tower Hamlets have already pledged 120K to carry out essential works, but more is needed to raise another 60K to complete the project in full.
Plans for the lodge include a new office for us, the Friends, a community café and event space. Through an exciting extension to the building, it could host a workshop/laboratory for science and conservation workshops for kids and adults - as well as an exhibition space, music venue and of course cafe. But you can use it for whatever you want!
To help us make this dream a reality we need your help!
