Greenwich & Docklands International FestivalThe whole of Greenwich comes alive for the Greenwich and Docklands International Festival, a nine day free festival of street performances, art and dancing in the streets. The festival offers a free and inclusive programme of world class theatre and dance, family entertainment, two extraordinary spectacles and a Greenwich Fair. The GDIF is especially good at putting on outdoor dance spectaculars, something the festival's Artistic Director, Bradley Hemmings, appointed Co-Artistic Director (along with Jenny Sealey of the London based Graeae Theatre Company) showed to a worldwide audience at the London 2012 Paralympic Opening Ceremony. The festival always opens with an epic outdoor spectacular and this year kicks off with Muaré, which sees aerialists perform beautiful choreography while suspended above the audience. Further highlights this year include Safe House from the team behind last year's As The World Tipped; Global Streets, which takes place at the festival's newest venue the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park; and Arka, a Polish theatre spectacular.
