This fun, free and family-friendly event is part of a nationwide celebration of our different communities, organised in partnership with the Jo Cox Foundation and The Big Lunch campaign. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about the East Bank partners – the BBC, Sadler’s Wells, the Smithsonian Institution, UAL’s London College of Fashion, UCL and the V&A – and the work they are already doing in the local area, as well as popular east London organisations including the Discover Story Centre, London Centre for Book Arts, Blackhorse Workshop and more.

So gather together your family, friends and anyone else you can find and make a day of it!

Please note, filming and photography will be taking place on the day for wider promotion of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, East Bank and LLDC’s community initiatives.
