Attend the Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Festival

Though those in Greenwich last night were treated to a surprise firework display, the Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Festival officially kicks off today, with a Festival Village in the Old Royal Naval College, a parade of Thames Barges at 3pm, a launch event called Peixos by Catalan street theatre group Sarruga at 8.30pm and more fireworks at 9.15pm.

This website will be covering nothing but the Festival - which continues until Tuesday 9th September - this weekend, as events take place in the Thames between Royal Woolwich Arsenal and Maritime Greenwich, including some at Greenwich Peninsula and at Wood Wharf in Docklands.
