Trinity Buoy Wharf is nestled between Royal Victoria Dock, Canning Town, and Poplar, not far from Canary Wharf, and is an enclave for arts and cultural activities. Located along England’s longest-running river, River Thames, the area represents the charm, character, and space of a former buoy manufacturing site in an exclusive riverside location. Trinity Buoy Wharf has kept its unique allure as a center for studio and gallery space, a pier, boat club, school, rehearsal rooms, three enormous sustainable and colorful Container City buildings, and dining options, such as The Orchard.
Event attendees can travel to Trinity Buoy Wharf by catching the Jubilee Line or DLR to Canning Town station, then take a 10-minute walk to the venue. Other options include DLR to East India station, followed by a 10-minute walk, Number 277 bus, alighting at the Town Hall on the north side of East India (DLR) station, or the D3 bus to Orchard Place. Parking on-site is not available.
Throughout the festival, fans will have options, including listening to music or retreating to the venue’s terrace to enjoy the surrounding outdoor seating areas nestled among artistic backdrops and expansive river views. Food trucks and fully staffed bars will also be on-site, offering diverse food and drink options.
Developer of Trinity Buoy Wharf, Eric Reynolds adds, “We warmly welcome the artists from Nashville. The festival on the 24th and 25th of August will herald a new music venue on the banks of the Thames.” Unlike past years when the two-day music event was held on Saturday and Sunday, NML 22 will be held during the evenings on Wednesday and Thursday night due to the venue’s availability and the event organizer’s effort to not interfere with other surrounding events.
