Interested about how people live in the city? Well, say no more, that’s what Shuffle Festival is all about!
This event aims to discuss the quality of spaces in the city and how people connect in these places and brings up the new concept of ‘placemaking’. The core areas of the festival are affordability, the combination and participation of cultures/communities and how the space is designed.
There’s plenty to choose from on one of the most exciting summer festivals happening in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park: picnic cinema, lectures (‘Regeneration’ Talk for instance) , film Q&A’s, comedy, live music and many other activities.
TIP: keep an eye on the programme as there are some events you can attend for free.
The festival runs from the 30th July until 3rd August and tickets start at £5.
