From Chinese dragon boat racing and acrobatic performers, to developments in the tech world, Greenwich has welcome thousands of visitors over the last couple of months.

The Greenwich and Docklands Festival came to an end last weekend headed by Royal Albert Dock (RAD).

RAD is a central part of London’s newest and most exciting destination, the Royal Docks.

The waterside community, officially opened earlier this year, and has since planned a series of both business and consumer focused events to coincide with its official launch.

A spokesman from RAD said: "Our recent events and involvement in existing London festivals, like the Greenwich + Docklands International Festival allowed us to welcome thousands of people to our development.

"We would like to thank the many partners and organisations with whom we have worked with these last few months, and look forward to continuing to strengthen our community by hosting even more events that celebrate our culture, build new bridges, and create more opportunities for visitors and residents alike.”

The Royal Albert Dock was transformed into a glittering outdoor ballroom, complete with a giant chandelier where the candles are human dancers, the first of its kind in the world, as part of the closing ceremony of the Greenwich + Docklands International Festival.

Founded in 1996, the Greenwich + Docklands International Festival is London’s leading festival of free outdoor theatre and performing arts, and this year included more than 130 shows from 43 companies, and attracted over 60,000 attendees.
