"An event whose annual contribution to the happiness of the people of London is unrivalled"
"A Thrilling showcase of high octane perfoming arts that use architectural landmarks as their backdrop " Sunday Times
The clocks have gone forward, the sun is shining and the countdown to GDIF 2011 has begun! This year's Festival will take place Friday 24 June -- Saturday 2 July and we're now making the final touches to the programme including the launch of an intensive new 3 day "festival within a festival" -- the Greenwich Fair. Those who enjoyed Graeae's production of The Garden last year will be pleased that their latest show based on Ted Hughes' The Iron Man will open proceedings. There will also be a return visit of Compagnie Off's spectacular Les Girafes as well as the London premiere of Wired Aerial Theatre's epic production As the World Tipped, directed by Nigel Jamieson who created the Opening Ceremony of the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. Full programme details will be online mid May. In the meantime our homepage slideshow gives a preview taste of what's to come. Check out http://www.festival.org.
