Returning for its second year, Canary Wharf will host their vibrant 5-day Festival14 from Wednesday 26 to Sunday 30 July. London’s newest free-to-attend festival[1] will see international acts take to the stage for an exciting week of culture held throughout Canary Wharf’s extensive parks, plazas, and open spaces. With a line-up spanning music, theatre, dance, comedy and children’s activities, there is something for everyone.

After the roaring success of last year’s inaugural Festival14, Canada Square Park will once again host a diverse range of acts on the main stage, with a mixture of world-class DJs, R&B, soul and jazz acts performing live to get festival go-ers into the groove.

Westferry Circus will be transformed into an intimate outdoor theatre overlooking the Thames, whilst Jubilee Park will provide a space for visitors to chill out, accompanied by music from the world’s largest street performance collective, Busk in London.

The feel-good festival will also offer a children’s disco and a brand-new comedy tent in Montgomery Square, hosting some of the UK’s top comedians from stage and screen for a series of performances not to be missed.

If you need to refuel, Canary Wharf will have a street food market running daily, offering a range of delicious dishes from around the world. You can also book in to one of the many bars, restaurants and cafes, some of which will be running special offers over the festival weekend.

Visitors are invited to discover all that the Estate has to offer as London’s culture capital with GoBoat, Padel tennis, Open Water Swimming, minigolf, ping pong and more. Festival14 forms part of Canary Wharf Group’s wider arts and events programme which makes art accessible to all and encompasses the UK’s largest free to visit public art collection which features over 100 art pieces across the Estate year-round.

Getting to the festival couldn’t be easier with the Elizabeth line, Jubilee line, DLR and Thames Clipper River Bus connecting Canary Wharf to the rest of London and beyond. For those looking to take in more of Festival14 across the weekend, recently opened Tribe hotel offers a place to rest and recuperate after a day of eating, drinking and dancing.

The full line-up for Festival14 will be announced in late May with the majority of acts free to attend, and a small number of ticketed events available to book in advance. 

[1] The majority of acts are free to attend, however a small number will require a pre-paid ticket for entry.
