Greenwich and Docklands International FestivalThe whole of Greenwich comes alive for the Greenwich and Docklands International Festival, a two-week free festival of street performances, art and dancing in the streets. This year promises to offer something different and reveal new perspectives on the world through outdoor theatre. It kicks off with A View from the Bridge, which tells the story of dock workers and illegal migrants in search of the American dream. A further theatre highlight is Rear View, presented on a specially adapted double decker bus. The Greenwich Fair also returns with four new shows and the proceedings come to a close with The Colour of Light, which sees enormous colour wheels roll through the streets of Woolwich accompanied by a soundtrack composed by Shri Sriram.
