Bloom Festivals at The Crossrail Place Roof Garden

Nestled at one end of The Crossrail Place Roof Garden is an intimate, informal 80 seat performance space. Each summer, in partnership with Canary Wharf Group, The Space delivers ‘Bloom’, a programme of festivals and performances. And this year, we are joining forces to help deliver 2019’s programme!

About Bloom Festivals

The Early and Late Bloom Festivals bring a wide variety of performances together in the stunning setting of the Roof Garden. The festivals run over 4 days and showcase local artists of all ages. Bloom features theatre, dance, music, spoken word and comedy.

This year, The Space have teamed up with us and we’re looking forward to welcoming artists and audience to the Bloom Festivals for the first time.
