Walthamstow Garden Party

A free weekend of music, theatre, food and family fun

26 - 27 July 2014 / 12:00
Lloyd Park, E17

Free (No tickets required)

Join us for two days of music, theatre, arts & crafts, food and family activity in Walthamstow’s beautiful Lloyd Park.

Following the huge success of last summer’s Open East Festival in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the free festival makes full use of the landscape of the park, home to the award-winning William Morris Gallery, filling it with an eclectic mix of non-stop entertainment.

The Walthamstow Garden Party features two music stages, showcasing international and local artists – including soul pioneers The Brand New Heavies and Ivory Coast's reggae powerhouse Tiken Jah Fakoly – a theatre & dance stage, pop-up performances and interactive fun taking place across the park. Enjoy refreshments from the Real Food Festival before taking time to browse the Useful & Beautiful Craft Marquee and E17 Designers Market showcasing local designs.
