Welcomefest Outdoor Festival

Friday 14 September 2018
noon - 11pm
Dreadnought grounds, Greenwich campus

Welcomefest is a 21 day festival running from September through to October right up to the Lower Deck launch! Situated right outside the north eastern side of the Dreadnought Building on the Greenwich campus, Welcomefest will showcase everything from live music to silent discos to cocktail master classes to wellbeing talks to society meet and greets. Located inside several wonderful stretch marquees this corner of Dreadnought will be transformed into a festival utopia with festoons, lanterns, outdoor furniture, a gin garden, a Moroccan lounge area and oh did we mention there’s a bar too? Whether you fancy just chilling out on a lazy Friday afternoon or cutting some serious shapes when the sun goes down, we look forward to seeing all you beautiful people at Welcomefest!
