Covid-19 information for participants

New date confirmed


With the safety and well-being of all participants at the forefront of our decision-making, the The Festival of Place and The Pineapples will now take place on 13 November, 2020 at Tobacco Dock, East London.


All bookings for the original date of 7 July will automatically be transferred to the new date and confirmed by email.


We’ll continue to follow the advice given to us by Public Health England and the World Health Organisation, and keep communicating with you as the situation around covid-19 evolves.


We’ll be taking full advantage of our unique semi-outdoor venue to bring people together safely to discuss how to make places worth living in – a challenge never more important than now. From space standards to social infrastructure, climate change to democracy, our expert speakers will unpick the future of how we live and develop our human habitats.


Our event has always challenged the status quo, and in this, November will be no different to July, although the vibe will be more winter market than summer fete!


Should you have any questions, please get in touch with James Macleod -


We look forward to seeing you in November!
