Never fear, we’ve produced a handy list of shops on the estate where you can purchase a brolly if you’re caught short in the rainfall and fancy a spot of dancing and singing.

Summer is a time for barbecues, festivals and general sunshine-based shenanigans, but the season can also bring tropical levels of rainfall.

If you find yourself caught short in an east-London monsoon there’s only one option.

Go out dancing in the downpour like Gene Kelly. But, to do it properly, you’ll need an umbrella. It’s an essential prop.

Let’s face it, though, we’re all too busy at our desks to spend hours hunting a brolly in the malls.

Fortunately we’ve done it for you – here’s our list of the shops in Canary Wharf where you can bag an appropriate prop.

Click them, call them or just nip down there in preparation for doing a Don Lockwood later on.
