Every year we play host to major visiting festivals and arts events, such as  Shuffle Festival, and Depart Circus which was part of the pan-London LIFT Festival in June 2016.  Such events have showcased sculptures, films, drama, circus, musical events, and we have even had a restaurant in a tree house!

We also organise our own Summer Fair each June along with our regular programme of educational, leisure, family and volunteering events.

Join our newsletter to be kept informed of upcoming events.

If you want to put on an event here, please contact us at the earliest possible planning stage.  We have an Artistic Policy which guides on what we believe is appropriate and respectful to take place in a Closed Cemetery, and you will need to liaise fully with the London Borough of Tower Hamlets Arts and Events Team regarding site hire, licensing and health and safety.
