The Crossrail Place Roof Garden is a 300-metre enclosed garden with an abundance of plants and trees which reference both the history and geography of Canary Wharf. Nestled at one end of the 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. All events delivered at the Roof Garden are free to attend. The Roof Garden performance space is available for local organisations to use for their performances/events.
The Roof Garden
From Canary Wharf tube station
Take the large escalator up from the ticket hall. Turn right out of the main exit and walk through Reuters Plaza pas the clocks. Walk straight ahead through the set of glass doors underneath the steps, and continue straight through until you come back outside. Walk through Adam’s Plaza and the entrance to Crossrail Place is in front of you. Go up the escalators to the Roof Garden and follow signs for the Performance Space.
From Canary Wharf DLR
Take the exit on to the North Colonnade. Opposite One Canada Square there is a bridge leading you into the first floor of Crossrail Place. Continue up the escalators to the Roof Garden and follow signs for the Performance Space.
The Crossrail Place Roof Garden performance space is available for local organisations and artists to use. There is no fee to use the performance space and all events must be free for people to attend.
The performance space has a PA system and portable flooring and management of the events will be supported by the team at the Space.
