The garden party was accompanied by music from local musicians Phase 5 Steelband and Captain H and the Hi-Tones. The Mayor of Bexley, Cllr Peter Reader officially opened the Lighthouse in front of an audience made up of all ages who had come out to enjoy Riverside Gardens, the summery sounds, the giant garden games and the sunshine!
Beers from local business, the Bexley Brewery, were on sale and the Greenwich Co-operative Development Agency provided a delicious menu  of food.

The Erith Lighthouse will be hosting a programme of special dinners and events to explore and celebrate Erith’s unique riverside London setting.  It will be at Riverside Gardens from 10–27 August and then at Erith Pier from 7-24 September. Seventeen chefs will host 17 dinners, creating      distinct menus inspired by Erith’s unique riverside location. Numbers are limited and dining must be booked in advance
