Poplar Union

Poplar Union is a multidisciplinary arts & community venue in East London, situated between the Limehouse Cut Canal and Bartlett Park. Since opening our doors in 2017, we have been committed to providing a communal, social and creative space accessible to all. Our goal is to create a real destination for the community through our diverse programme of events, spanning theatre, comedy, spoken word, music, dance, health and wellbeing, and family activities.

Although only open for 2 years, we have already begun to make our mark as a cultural destination for Poplar.

Our family-friendly offer

Poplar Union is a family and child friendly arts centre, offering an array of workshops, activities and events throughout the year. 

Our website states if a performance is relaxed, what the age suitability is, and any details specific to an activity or event. Ticket prices are kept low to ensure we are accessible to all.


The building is fully accessible and comes equipped with baby-change facilities, changing rooms, disabled parking bays, and free WiFi. The centre is on one level and is pushchair friendly. Find out more here.
