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 and Fat Boys All-American Diner.
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.
Peter Conway of Peter Conway Management and Promotions and Nashville Meets London Co-Founder, and Producer comments that “as NML continues to grow, so does the need for an alternative location. We are very grateful for what we built at Canary Wharf; however, we are excited to have a footprint that offers flexibility and will allow us to spread out and curate more intimate fan experiences where fans can feel more connected with one another and with the artists.“
Matt Watkins of The AristoMedia Group and Nashville Meets London Co-Founder and Producer comments, “We expect something special. We are planning a grand comeback, and we can already sense the excitement.”
