Summer Celebration at the Royal Docks goes off with a bang

Last Saturday 24 June saw the Royal Albert Wharf Summer Celebration event take place at Royal Albert Wharf in the Royal Docks. Residents and friends of Royal Albert Wharf were treated to tasty street food, drinks, music, guided tours and art exhibitions with the support of Bow Arts, the London Festival of Architecture, GCDA and London Urban Visits. This was the first major event involving new residents and friends which marked the beginning of some exciting times for the Royal Docks and its new neighbourhood.
