Waltham Forest London Borough of Culture 2019
Waltham Forest was the first ever Mayor’s London Borough of Culture in 2019, and will always remain London’s Borough of Culture.
The award from the Mayor of London has enabled us to ensure arts and culture is always placed at the heart of our communities.
From music festivals and garden parties, to busking in shop windows and human libraries, 2019 was a celebration of the communities in Waltham Forest, with music, art, culture and more absolutely bursting from our corner of East London.
We’d like to extend a massive thank you to all the local residents, community groups, artists, school children, volunteers, council staff and everyone in-between who has made the first-ever London Borough of Culture one to remember
Culture and community has always had a special place in Waltham Forest, and long may that continue.
