Welcome to Poplar Union

Happy New Year to you, and Happy Birthday to us… Poplar Union is 3! And we’re celebrating the only way we know how; with a whole host of vibrant and engaging events and activities especially for you!

In January, we are proud to bring back POP-Goes Green for the second year, celebrating all things sustainable and eco-friendly. Helping you on your green journey are Sunny Jar with their new D*I*S Workshops (that’s ‘do-it-sustainably’); what better time to ditch the plastic and embrace the bio-degradable! Or teach the younger generation all about the environment through theatre with Really Big Pants’ hilarious pirate show, Plundered!

We’re pleased to support our local community’s wellbeing this winter with a variety of physical and mental health services, in partnership with the Borough of Tower Hamlets, which we hope will provide much needed comfort and support.

We’ll be feeling the love… or the heartbreak in February with Rosie Wilby’s tragicomic live podcast recording of The Breakup Monologues, where comedians and writers share their tales of awful dates and failed romances. We’ll also be hosting a new season of Live in the Library- free live music and delicious pizza from e5 Roasthouse, a perfect match.

And we’re delighted to be producing our third International Women’s Day festival: Women in Focus. With live music, cabaret, workshops and more to inspire, challenge and empower. Keep your eyes peeled for the line up announcement!
