Stay up to date with what's on at Barking Riverside

Together we make Barking Riverside, so our events programme is locally led with purpose and pride.
Reasons for people to get together are an essential part of making Barking Riverside a place like no other. An annual calendar of resident-led events and large-scale public events draw thousands of people from Barking and beyond. Whilst COVID-19 has meant that events for this year have needed to be dispersed and virtual, BRL and local people have still worked together to ensure that there is plenty for people to do. From firework displays, free yoga, and digital art exhibitions, to running events and festivals – Barking Riverside is both a community and a destination.
