Wander along Royal Albert Wharf after dark and you might see something surprising... Shadow stories and images celebrating London's diverse communities will light up the windows of the wharf.

Perhaps you'll glimpse a moment from docklands history, a tale from another time and place, or even a tightrope walking T-Rex! Each artist will create a unique Shadow Play picture in their studio window, making a cinematic journey along the waterside.

Twelve windows, twelve wonders, one wharf.

The windows will light up together in an inclusive event at 4pm -10pm from Friday 2nd December, and every night till Christmas.

Supported by the Royal Docks Team.
