The next Your Neighbourhood Talks will take place on the 27th of September 2022, 5-9 pm at Hackney Bridge.

It offers members of the community the opportunity to engage directly with partners, ask questions, share ideas, and identify opportunities for collaboration or support. This YNT the marketplace stalls which will be clustered together in themes; Young People, Sustainability, Neighbourhoods & Venues, Skills & Employment and SHIFT's Inclusive Innovation.

Your Neighbourhood Talks info
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 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.

Each event is hosted at a different venue around the Park, providing an opportunity to explore some of the businesses and community spaces on your doorstep. Past venues have included London Stadium, the Bobby Moore Academy and Plexal at Here East.

As well as a panel discussion and venue tours, you’ll find the community marketplace at every Your Neighbourhood Talks.
