Aldgate Square Festival: Arts, music, performance and talks from Aldgate and beyond:
This summer, the City of London is launching its new public square with a fantastic, fun-filled FREE festival celebrating the cultural wealth of Aldgate and beyond.
Aldgate Community Events is one of the many organisations the City is collaborating with in the development of Aldgate Square Festival, which is set to showcase a vibrant spectrum of music, dance, performance, food, games and theatre from around the East End.
The festival launches Aldgate Square, which is situated between Sir John Cass Foundation Primary School on the West and St Botolph’s without Aldgate on the East along Aldgate High Street; and it is an opportunity for the wider community to establish an ownership of this new public space.
The weekend will represent a creative collaboration between myriad groups, organisations; arts, educational and religious centres, businesses and individuals, celebrating the immensity of talent which resides in this unique corner of the capital, as well as the strength of its history.
The festival is being led by City of London in partnership with multiple organisations, including St Botolph’s without Aldgate, Kahaila Café, Sir John Cass Foundation Primary School, Canon Barnett Primary School, Toynbee Hall, Aldgate Community Events, Artizan Street Library and Community Centre, Mansell Street Estate, Middlesex Street Estate, Golden Lane Estate, The Aldgate Partnership, Arts Admin and Toynbee Studios, Cardboard Citizens, London Metropolitan Archives, London Metropolitan University, Tower Hamlets Council, Swadhinata Trust, RadhaRaman Society, East End Speed Histories, and Tower Bridge, amongst many others.
