Doughnut: The Outer London Festival

  • 06:00 - 17 August, 2015
Doughnut: The Outer London Festival
Doughnut: The Outer London Festival, A day long exploration of London's rapidly transforming periphery at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich
A day long exploration of London's rapidly transforming periphery at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich

This one day event, on September 5th, will bring together writers, historians, architects and economists to discuss the development of London's peripheral boroughs. Doughnut will be the first event of its kind – an adventurous celebration of all things Outer London and a critical reflection on the rapid transformation that the city's periphery is currently experiencing.

The main theatre line-up will include a conversation between Will Self, the Patron of the festival, and award winning writer Hanif Kureishi. Outside, businesses and artists from London's periphery will be manning pop-up food stalls, staging music performances and other family-friendly activities.

Main Theatre

A stellar line-up of contributors will thrash out the key questions facing the the city's edges, from the sanctity of the Green Belt to the future of suburban living. All day tickets as well as tickets for individual sessions are available.

Courtyard Stage

London has one of the most diverse and creative music scenes in the world but as property prices spiral, musical production is increasingly most exciting on the periphery where practice space and housing is still within reach of emerging musicians. Doughnut will celebrate the music of Outer London with a line-up of bands representing a cross section of boroughs and genres playing throughout the day. Line up TBA.

The Outer London Market

In the courtyard of the Queen Anne building an array of traders, makers, food purveyors and educators will form the Outer London Market. Get a manicure, sample Outer London's finest Jerk Chicken, help create a giant map of the perfect periphery, explore the Mobile Museum's collection or 3D print a London telephone box.
