Unique and chic: a week of culture in Canary Wharf
Canary Wharf is fast establishing itself as one of the capital's premier hubs of culture and cuisine, and next week sees two of the Docklands' foremost cultural delights return to Canary Wharf's delightful green spaces.
On Tuesday 2nd August, Canada Square Park will be the venue for a soothing serenade of operatic arias from classical luminaries including Mary Bevan, Timothy Connor, Nicky Spence, and Madeleine Shaw.
Opera Al Fresco features performances of arias and overtures from operas including The Barber of Seville, Rigoletto, The Marriage Of Figaro, Carmen, La Boheme, Tosca, and La Traviata.
This wonderful concert is free to attend, so all you need to do is bag yourself a plot on the park and enjoy the music (a lovely picnic and a few cool drinks are always a welcome addition to an evening in Canada Square Park, too).
Canary Wharf is growing in stature as a culinary hotspot, and it's not just just institutions such as Boisdale and Goodman that are causing a stir; local, independent food-makers are bringing cuisine as varied as Peruvian, Swedish, Vietnamese, and Scottish to the Lunch Market.
