Programmed by the Barbican and Create London in partnership with Waltham Forest Council, the Walthamstow Garden Party is a free two-day festival in E17 that combines a cracking music line-up with plenty of family fun: theatre, dancing, comedy, circus, art activities with the William Morris Gallery and a designers’ market. The international music bill this year includes Asian Dub Foundation, Mo’ Kalamity, Islam Chipsy and Sam Lee. It’s all well worth venturing up the Victoria line for, and represents yet another reason that this corner of north-east London deserves its new title: ‘Awesomestow’.
As part of the festival, the William Morris Gallery are curating the Useful + Beautiful Marquee & Trail, a designer/maker focused programme for children and adults, inspired by the life and work of William Morris.
This is a free event.
