Greenwich FairTwin brothers Luis and Miguel Cordoba demonstrate the surprising number of ludicrous things a human can do with stepladders. It's just one of the 30 productions that are part of the Greenwich Fair, once the largest and most raucous outdoor gathering in Britain which was, apparently, one of Charles Dickens' favourite events in London. 160 years on, and the Greenwich Fair still boasts a huge programme of outdoor performing arts over two days. This year you can see Boudicca roaming around Old Royal Naval College and Cutty Sark Gardens as well as many circus, theatre, dance, street games, cabaret, live art events. The fair is part of the nine day Greenwich and Docklands International Festival, described by the Sunday Times as "a thrilling showcase of high octane performing arts that use architectural landmarks as their backdrop".

 

About Greenwich Park

As a World Heritage Site marking the site of the Greenwich Meridian (the base point for World Time and the location of Longitude 0) Greenwich is most famous for being associated with time and with space. As you walk across the spectacular Greenwich Park you get a potent sense of both. More about Greenwich Park
