What is All Points East and how do I get in touch?

All Points East is a ten-day event taking place from Friday 24 May to Sunday 02 June 2019 in Victoria Park.

Kicking off on the Friday will be a three-day music festival (Fri 24 – Sun 26 May), followed by a free-to-access 4-day community focused midweek event which will deliver an entertainment programme of, outdoor cinema, food & drink, music, sports and more (Mon 27 – Thurs 30 May). All Points East culminates the following weekend with a further three-day music festival (Fri 31 May – Sun 02 June).

Mayor of Tower Hamlets, John Biggs, said:

“I am pleased that following the success of All Points East this summer - with considerably improved management from the previous contract - it will be returning in 2019 to the award winning Victoria Park in Tower Hamlets. Using our park for events enjoyed by thousands of people through well-managed events while respecting our responsibilities to best manage disruption to local residents is the secret to continuing success.

We worked closely with AEG to ensure local residents needs were considered at this year’s event and I am grateful for the attention they gave to this. We can of course always aim to learn and improve further.

Also returning in 2019 will be the ‘In the Neighbourhood‘ midweek programme, a free event which attracted over 20,000 people daily, brought people in our communities together in celebration, showcased some of the rich artistic talent and offered business opportunities to local entrepreneurs.

These events also bring in vital income that helps protect the frontline council services residents rely on. I look forward to another successful festival and hearing the full list of acts performing at All Points East in 2019.”
