A pop-up beacon of summer culture is set to host its first event in Erith next week with a free garden party.

The Erith Lighthouse will be home to local musicians Phase 5 Steelband and Captain H and the Hi-Tones while serving local pints from Bexley Brewery at the Riverside Gardens event on August 10.

Spaces are limited for the free event, with booking available at

“From walks to fine dining, arts, crafts to afternoon tea, there is something for everyone to enjoy at the Lighthouse and in such a great setting, right by the river. It is the perfect way to shine a light on part of the borough that has such fantastic untapped potential. I encourage local residents to go online and book their space for the Garden Party and come and celebrate the arrival of the Lighthouse.”

The lighthouse will appear at the Riverside Gardens from August 10 to 27, then moving on to Erith Pier from September 7 to 24.
