The Great Get Together is a free to enter, flagship community event is inspired by and showcases the best of East London, bringing together music, dance, arts, sports and food for all to enjoy.

The Great Get Together is back!

Join us to celebrate the community of east London and to reminisce on the famous summer of 2012 and all the incredible developments and opportunity that have come from the London 2012 games.

This year's one-day event is set to the biggest ever as we mark 10 years since the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Prepare to be wowed by mainstage line-up, expect breakthrough acts and cutting-edge music brought to you by BBC Music Introducing.

London School of Samba Parade will bring a fiesta of vibrant colour and rhythmic dance, and Breakin’ Convention are back with their rap lyrics and hip-hop moves - we challenge you not to dance along. Awe-inspiring circus acts, immersive street theatre and an acoustic area jam-packed with up-and-coming local singers, musicians plus poets are sure to keep you entertained throughout the day.

Here East will have a stand at the GGT in collaboration with Hands on Science. We'll be running STEM based activities for children 4 years and up parents will also have the chance to come and relax and grab a drink while their children have a go at the activities we are putting on. Our two drop-in and free activites will be:

  • Making and flying your own kite
  • Building a rivet and testing its strength.
