A free festival is being held at Greenwich Peninsula this weekend to celebrate the opening of a 'creative neighbourhood' featuring a new riverside garden.

Turning Tides is a free music, arts and 'wellness' festival, marking the opening of London first linear park, designed by the architects behind Manhattan's iconic High Line.

The event celebrates the opening of the first kilometre of what will eventually be a five kilometre elevated park, linking all seven of the new neighbourhoods on Greenwich Peninsula.

Music is curated by Village Underground, hosts of one of London's most consistent club nights, featuring artists from across the globe, including New Orleans funk and hip-hop.

Across the weekend a rolling line-up of pop-up food will be on offer, including London's longest picnic table, stretching 27-metres.

Throughout the Festival there will be a number of wellness and shoreline activities, including London-based Morning Gloryville offering an energetic sober celebration of music, yoga and reiki sessions, group tai chi sessions, yoga and dance sessions.
