Come along to the playground in Greenwich Park for a family fun event for ages 6+. This Summer in the Park event will feature Autin Dance Theatre’s Out of the Deep Blue, an outdoor performance featuring a large-scale Sea Giant puppet!

In addition, audiences can also enjoy Anatomical‘s audio adventure MidSummerland! Plug in your headphones and grab your partner before setting off on a magical journey through the festival. Take the Noodle Pathway past the Cannonball Hedgehogs, through the Thoughtful Field and into the mysterious tent where your fortune will be told. Make sure to save enough energy for the grand finale – the annual trifle dance!

South East London based author, artist and illustrator Haffeera Cader Saul will present a unique reading of her children’s book Are You There? Buzzed the Busy Bees and The Squirrelling Squirrel with a fantastic puppet show!

Continuing the environmental theme, local artist Valerio Oliveira will be making colourful costume creations out of recycled plastic bags! And Sally McKay, friend of Greenwich Dance and another local artist will be offering arts and crafts activities for the whole family to enjoy.


What to expect

Our Summer in the Park performances are intended to be social gatherings with entertainment suitable for all of the family. They are relaxed and informal, you do not need a ticket and will not be expected to be quiet or be seated.

Wet Weather

This event takes place outdoors and as we can’t rely on the British weather to be kind to us all of the time, we suggest following us on Twitter or Facebook to find out the latest news on our wet weather plans.


There are a number of toilet blocks in the park including accessible toilets. Both the Pavilion Tea Rooms and White House Café will be open for refreshments.
