Discover fun in unexpected places as Royal Docks Originals Family Weekender and Bow Arts brings free art and culture to Royal Albert Wharf.

Taking place in October half term, the weekend of wonder brings together music, circus, art, dance, and more in a celebration of creativity and imagination. Head to the covered stage to watch exciting live performances, or visit the Art in The Docks Gallery to see inspiring art and fun activities to take part in.
