- Greenwich Fair
- War Correspondents
- Safe House
- Global Streets
- Dancing City
The GDIF gyrates from its gravity-defying aerial choreography to global stories of war and peace. There is the encounter between living and the dead and houses are turned inside out. The pop-ups are breath taking—from desert islands to flying ships. It is a magic of outdoor theater that is being perpetually reinvented to see the world anew.
Dancing City is an annual celebration of contemporary dance happening in the urban environment of Canary Wharf. Dancing City happens in co terminus with GDIF.
The best of GDIF is that in addition to the exciting performances the event also offers delegates opportunities to update through seminars, solicit artists’ pitches and network extensively.
If you are visiting London, you will come across developments coming up with good connectivity from Greenwich to and Canary Wharf via Cutty Sark DLR. These are locations ideal for enjoying the river and commuting without hassles to work and relax. There is a touch of the Greenwich experience in all these new developments.
Among the New Developments to rent in Greenwich mention to be made of Riverside Development at Capital Quay where spacious properties of multi bed room penthouses having bespoke interiors, private terraces are available. They offer breath-taking views over the River Thames.
