Printer-friendly version

Surrounded by water in the heart of the IFSC, the George's Dock platform can accommodate a wide range of events and at 1500m2, is one of the few outdoor sites in the city centre of its scale. The platform also includes ramps for access and loading and ready to go services that can cater for a wide range in scale of events. 


Originally constructed in 2004 to host the Spiegeltent, the platform has since been used for a wide range of public and private/corporate events as well and a variety of shows and concerts. Events held on the platform include Oktoberfest, Luminarium, 12 Days of Christmas Market, the children's area of the Maritime festival, and the highly acclaimed Circus ImMortal by NoFitState.
