Your Neighbourhood Talks

Each year, London Legacy Development Corporation hosts two Your Neighbourhood Talks events with the wider community to bring people together to consider key issues and opportunities in and around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. 

This Your Neighbourhood Talks will be held on 19 March 2024 at UCL East on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park with a focus on 'Community Networks'. There will be the opportunity to connect with local community organisations, businesses and East Bank Partners as well as to find out updates on developments around the Park. You'll be able to find out what is happening around the Park and collaborate on local issues in your community. There will be tours running of UCL throughout the evening, a special Cultural Lab exhibition run by the School for Creative and Culture Industries, and catering provided by Gather and Gather.


We're delighted to announce that our next Your Neighbourhood Talks will be held on 19 March 2024 at UCL East on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, with a focus on 'Community Networks'.

Your Neighbourhood Talks is our six-monthly resident forum, taking place each March and September and open to everyone – whether you live, work or study in the local area. It provides an opportunity to meet with London Legacy Development Corporation, and many other organisations based around the Park, to discuss the impact of their work and find out how you can get involved. If you have questions about construction activity, events, education, training, jobs and other local issues, this is the place to find answers.

This event falls during Ramadan so there will be provisions in place for those observing, like dates, fruit and food served at Iftar, as well as designated prayer spaces.

As part of our March's Your Neighbourhood Talks, there will be tours of the UCL East building running throughout the evening. The School for Creative and Cultural Industries will be opening a special Cultural Lab exhibition, showcasing stories from East London. 

Book a free ticket via Eventbrite and come see what the new space is like! 


The marketplace is a main feature of the event and is an opportunity for stakeholders to have a ‘stall’ and informally talk to attendees about who they are, what they do on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and beyond. It offers members of the community the opportunity to engage directly with partners, ask questions, share ideas, and identify opportunities for collaboration or support.

An example of our marketplace stallholders are:

Our roundtables are an informal opportunity to discuss topics or for people to ask general questions directly to LLDC and for the Park. Anyone is welcome to join the roundtables! 

March's Your Neighbourhood Talks will feature two roundtables led by local initiatives with a focus on community networks.

Local Community Activity List

Some of the feedback that we got from September's Your Neighbourhood Talks was to have more information available about all the incredible work that’s happing around the Park. As a starting point to address this, we asked local organisations to share their top highlights for the next 3-6 months. This list is the result of this and is a collection of some of the brilliant activities run by local organisations and businesses. This is a trial document that aims to keep the community informed about events happening in and around the Park. We intend to publish an updated list of activities after each Your Neighbourhood Talks event. This is in no way an exhaustive list and we hope for it to grow over time. If you have any suggestions of activity that should be included in the next list or potential collaborators please let us know!

Your Neighbourhood Talks September 2023

This Your Neighbourhood Talks was themed ‘Neighbourhood Priorities’ highlighting community activity around the Park. As well as the usual range of businesses and organisations around the Park in the marketplace, the event showcased initiatives including successful LLDC Neighbourhood Priorities Fund projects. We held roundtables focusing on Community Space, Community Activity, and Jobs and Skills. 

Attendees found out what was happening around the Park and collaborated on local issues in the community. They were also taken on a tour of the community spaces on Carpenter's Estate. Refreshments were provided by local organisations Oitiijo and Grow, Hackney!
