Take a dip into a world of watery tales and crafts with Ferry Tales creative workshops for families. Dock for a while and listen to sugar-sweet and sometimes murky tales of the water's edge, mermaids, and river treasures.
We’ll also be making dressing-up accessories and boats and planes for the great race at the Ferry Festival on 10th August. For more information contact CN.BecktonRoyalDocks@newham.gov.uk.
