Come and enjoy #GLOW2019 as we explore the theme of ILLUSION with a night of magical lanterns, projections & installations on Friday 8th November and Saturday 9th November at Eastbury Manor House from 5pm - 10pm!

This is our third winter lights festival at Eastbury Manor House and over the past two GLOW festivals we have welcomed over 3,500 visitors! Our aim is to bring light to the darkest months and bring opportunities for our local communities to come together.

Find out what is coming up

All the arts events and activities that take place as part of the Creative Barking and Dagenham programme are chosen by local residents (our Cultural Connectors) working with artistic advisers and strategic partners. We currently have four programme strands, with projects happening across Barking and Dagenham involving a wide range of art forms.  These include REACH, Get Creative, Festivals and the Partnership Programme. For all the events, from steering groups and panel meetings, Cultural Connectors get-togethers and deadlines for our opportunities take a look at the calendar below!
