2017



GDIF takes place across outdoor spaces in east and south east London with a focus on the town centres of Greenwich, Woolwich and Tower Hamlets. Outdoor shows welcome all audiences and are typically more relaxed than indoor performances.

We make every effort to ensure that events are accessible to everyone who wants to attend; particularly disabled and older people. We will provide information on the main festival locations to the right, and information on BSL, captioning and audio description below.
