Join the Docks Partner Briefings


Join the Docks Partner Briefings

Join the Docks is the Royal Docks’ summer festival. From July until September, everyone is invited to explore the area’s beautiful water, parks, and arts venues through three months of special events.

If you're an individual, community group or arts organisation, you can apply now for a small grant of up to £5,000 or flagship event funding of up to £50,000. At these partner briefing sessions, we will introduce the festival and answer any questions you have about becoming a partner.

If you would like to find out more about Join the Docks, please RSVP for our session on Wednesday 15 May, 10.30am-12.30pm at The Crystal, E16 1GB.

To attend, please RSVP to with '15 May' in the subject line. If you are unable to attend but would like a direct conversation with the festival team please email
