The Greenwich World Cultural Festival returns to Eltham Palace and Gardens on the 20th July. The laid back family event brings you dance, theatre, music, art, and circus from around the world.

For one day only, entry will be free, so it is the opportunity to explore the beautiful grounds, which has a sunken rose garden, spring bulb meadow, rock garden, woodland garden, orchids in the glasshouse, and a playground. It is a delightful place to have a picnic.

You can also admire the architecture of the Great Hall, which was built in the 1470s. Turned into a vintage ballroom, you will be able to take part in social dancing and creative workshops. There will also be pop up performances, such as a grizzly bear dance, a cabinet of curiosities on the back of a bicycle, music from Gypsy Dread Band and Rhythm of the City samba percussion squad, and an interactive audio soundscape installation.

Other activities will include Family dance and Chinese ribbon dance workshops, clay model making, and drawing.
