So much to shout about

TH_IS is a campaign to celebrate the great and good in Tower Hamlets.

Anyone who lives in, studies, works in or visits Tower Hamlets is invited to tell their story — ranging from individual residents and visitors to large community groups, institutions, visitor attractions and organisations.

We're all blessed with some amazing assets, including:

  • Some of the country’s best destinations ranging from the crown jewels to London's only lighthouse
  • Business — global and local — that combined, generate the third highest economic output by any local authority in the U.K.
  • Over 120 parks and open spaces including Victoria Park, the People's Park, home to All Points East music festival
  • World-class art, learning and innovation
  • A proud history of welcoming immigrants, celebrating and defending diversity

All of this has made Tower Hamlets one of the most popular and fastest growing places in the UK.

But with so much happening, it is easy to miss what is going on around us.

TH_IS gives you the tools to tell your story and help others to explore them.

Your TH_IS will be different to the next person — by sharing your stories, you will be helping us all to develop a new perspective and uncover some of the lesser known sides to Tower Hamlets.

TH_IS yours.
