The Wapping Summer Shindig takes over Wapping again this Saturday 7th July from 10.30am – 7pm with the main fun and excitement taking place on Wapping Green. The Thames River police museum will also be open and Ray Newton will be educating you with his history walks.
There is a football match on somewhere at 3pm but don’t go and watch that come to this instead! More fun, less penalty shoot-outs.

And of course the Wapping Shindig would not be the event it is without the Thames River Police Museum being open from 11am to 5pm! Yay!
Please note that the river police museum (aka MPS Marine Police Unit) is unique! So this is a rare chance to have a look inside.
