The Friends of Arnold Circus is a charitable community organisation (Registered Charity No. 1114726) dedicated to the regeneration and upkeep of the Arnold Circus bandstand and surrounding Boundary Gardens, located in the centre of the historic Boundary Estate.

Established by local residents in 2004, we have worked with the community to turn Arnold Circus from an unloved and run-down space into the much-loved and well-tended oasis it is today. 

IMPORTANT: Formal responsibility for Arnold Circus  lies with Tower Hamlets Local Authority. Any complaints, representations or comments should primarily be aimed at the Parks and Open Spaces team here.
