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.

A series of exciting events will take place throughout Summer 2021. From exhibitions, workshops, talks and art installations – Barking Riverside is both a community and a destination.
