Welcome to Poplar Union

The nights are getting longer, the days warmer and the Central Line stickier. This can only mean one thing- Summer is finally here! As well as launching our Summer programme, there are a few changes and opportunities to let you know about!

In June, Poplar Union became the official home of Danielle Teal’s Dancing with Parkinson’s Company, increasing resources for dancers with Parkinson’s and bringing visibility and opportunity to the Parkinson’s dancer. We will be presenting a public sharing of the company’s work in July so check out the website for further information.

Speaking of dance, we have a whole host of events that’ll get you moving this Summer, from Chicken Shack’s new jive classes to an array of Carnival celebrations. We’ll be celebrating Pride with film screenings and comedy fundraisers, plus we’ll be launching a whole host of new classes for adults and children to get involved in.

We’ll be launching a new membership for Poplar HARCA residents, entitling members to lots of discounts and offers. Find out more and how to apply on our website.

If you like the sound of what we’ve got going on at PU and would like to get involved, we’re currently on the lookout for new members to join our board. This is a voluntary role but is a great way to be more active in your community and work alongside the team at Poplar Union to improve and shape what we do. To express your interest, drop me an email:

Have a wonderful Summer!
