International Quarter London events for Stratford residents

Have you heard about all of the fantastic events happening at International Quarter London (IQL) this summer? There is plenty going on at our brand-new popup Calico; a café, bar and community focused events space. It serves a great selection of delicious coffees and locally brewed beer from Crate Brewery near to the canal in Hackney Wick, so it’s an ideal place to pop by on your lunch break or for an after work tipple overlooking the Stratford skyline.

There is also our beautiful Summer Lawn taking over The Spark this summer, with new summer planters in full bloom, and a jam-packed events programme. Here are some of our favourites for your diary; 


14 July: Join Fitness Fox London for a high energy Ladies HIIT Training on the Summer Lawn to squat, crawl, jump and tone up! The 45-minute session focuses on total body movement patterns to develop muscular shape and tone alongside cardio in a fun group training environment. Book your free slot here.


28 July: Get the kids signed up to our “London City” LEGO Workshop with Mini Engineers so they can rebuild their vision of London City out of LEGO! They’ll have a chance to design, build and enhance their creativity through some interactive hands-on learning, as well as enjoying some LEGO play with friends. Book their slot here.


29 July: Head down to our Summer Lawn to try some disco yoga, featuring flow style yoga to a dazzling disco soundtrack. Expect all the disco favourites including Diana Ross, Chic, The Jackson Five and more classics to unwind from the city on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Book you and your friends a free slot here.


11 August: “Tai Chi, once learned, is a treasure for a lifetime”… if you fancy picking it up yourself, pop along to our Over 50s session in August. The session will consist of slow movements accompanied by natural breathing, and there’s no special clothing or equipment needed. Book your free slot here.
