A 2,500 tonne former East German fishing vessel has arrived in Canary Wharf, where it will be moored until May.

MS Stubnitz is to host a spring programme of arts and events, ranging from trapeze workshops, to cabaret, to a full contemporary circus.

The 80 metre ship arrived at its Wood Wharf mooring this week, having previously hosted the likes of Ramstein and Grandmaster Flash in ports around Europe.

MS Stubnitz crew member Aste Amundsen said: “We are delighted to present a short but action packed season of arts and events at Wood Wharf this spring.

“It’s a striking setting for the ship worthy of a visit in and of itself. This new mooring is also very central and easily accessible by public transport.”
