The Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park work closely with a number of social, educational and arts organisations to deliver our services.
In particular, we are proud to host a number of major visiting festivals, including Shuffle Festival and Depart Circus.Such events have showcased sculptures, films, drama, circus, musical events, and we have even had a restaurant in a tree house! We also champion the arts, including art installations such as Endangered 13 and appointing a Poet in Residence.
Do you want to partner with us or put on an event? Please do not hesitate to get in touch.
