The Ferry Festival, an original North Woolwich & Silvertown community festival which has its roots in the 70s, brought a FREE Winter Wonderland Day Event to the heart of the Royal Docks on the Sunday of the 11th of December.
This magical event, which took place at The Beams on the Thameside Industrial Estate E16, offered an afternoon full of entertainment and activities for visitors of all ages.
The programme included all the Christmas favourites: Santa’s Grotto, Christmas Market, Music by Newham Music and Harry’s Open Mic & Jam, Arts and Crafts, Face Painting, and for an extra festive touch, Line Dancing.
Caramel Rock, our charity that provides training, support and opportunities for young people in the fashion industry, had its students showcasing their own work in a glamorous fashion show.
A performance from Royal Docks local musician Harry Demmon, from Harry’s Open Mic & Jam, put an unforgettable end to the evening.
Visitors were able to taste different foods including hot soup, wraps, cakes, dumplings and jerk chicken from local chef Jackie’s Love Kitchen.
The Ferry Festival – Winter Wonderland Day has been coordinated by the Royal Docks Learning and Activity Centre, funded by The Royal Docks Team, and in partnership with the local branch of the Royal British Legion, Newham Council, Tate & Lyle Sugars and London City Airport.
