COVID- 19: Waltham Forest Council Summer Events Programme Cancelled

Waltham Forest Council’s 2020 summer events programme has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.   

As one of the largest summer events – the Walthamstow Garden Party (WGP) 2020 will not be going ahead as planned, the Council will work with event partners the Barbican, Arts Council England and Create London to explore new ways of working together.  Read more on the WGP website.  

The Council is developing a Virtual Culture programme of activity to support residents in isolation, whilst also supporting the borough’s local artists and creators to be launched in April.  
More information on how to get involved or take part will be available shortly.

We are continuing to monitor the outbreak very closely and any decision to run events from September will be made on guidance from the government.
