Dock Tales Online Event

Join the Docks

Dock Tales Online Event

Uncover the stories surrounding the water at the Royal Docks and the people who use it. Join our Q&A and share your own anecdotes in this special, free online event.

Dock Tales, part of Join The Docks 2020 is a series of interviews with members of the community in the Royal Docks London who use the dock water for work, and pleasure. From the captain of a local Dragon Boat team, to a student who has undertaken lifeboat training, Dock Tales are their stories.

Throughout November, their anecdotes will appear on the Royal Docks website, and at the end of the month on November 30th you’ll have the opportunity to ask them questions, and share your own ‘Dock Tale’ in our live online event.

Was there something in their ‘Dock Tale’ that has intrigued you or, would you like to share your own reflections about this watery wonderland? We’d love to meet you. Join us for our free online public event.

The event will be hosted by Momtaz Begum-Hossain, a local journalist who is running the Dock Tales project.


7-7.30pm: Meet the Dock Tales community
7.30-8pm: Your chance to ask questions and/or share your Dock Tale

Get in touch! If you would like to send in a question ahead of the event, please email, or, you are welcome to ask it on the day. If you have Dock Tale you’d like to talk about on the evening, or have any photos you’d like to share, please also send details to Momtaz.

Before November 30th, don’t forget to check out the Dock Tales interviews.
