Healing Together

A spectacular fire and light installation will unite the north and south banks of the Thames in the spirit of healing for this fun-filled, family-friendly weekend.

Following the success of the Fire Garden last year, the striking specially-made installation from Walk The Plank is just what’s needed to commemorate loss and celebrate community resilience following the pandemic.

Healing Together will also feature art installations co-created with local communities, performances, and local food and drink, filling Royal Victoria Gardens with uplifting moments and time for reflection.

Events include:

  • After the Storm Walk the Plank
  • A Square World Daryl Beeton
  • Bee-ology Bumble Movement Arts
  • Do What Yah Mamma Told Yah! Just More Productions
  • Frock Stopgap Dance Company
  • From Greenwich with Love Greenwich Dance
  • Fire Garden Walk the Plank
  • Ida Barr Christopher Green
  • Recovery Poems Emergency Exit Arts
  • Robot Selfie Kaleider
  • The Rascally Diner LAStheatre
  • The Hidden Music of Trees Jason Singh
  • The Other Side Ascension Dance
  • Urban Astronaut Highly Sprung
  • What Happened to You? Nikki Charlesworth

Highlights include:

Get closer to nature as you explore the park’s green spaces and listen out for a sound installation created by Jason Singh among the plants.

We’ve spent so long apart recently that it’s time to come together for some community cohesion and reinvigoration.
