We are sorry to announce that Walthamstow Garden Party 2020 will not be going ahead as planned due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. This has been a difficult decision to make but working together to reduce the spread of COVID-19 is our top priority.
We know this is very disappointing not only to everyone who was looking forward to enjoying the festival but to those who have worked so hard on the event so far.
At the heart of Walthamstow Garden Party is the Waltham Forest community. Although we won’t be able to bring people together in the beautiful surrounds of Lloyd Park this year, with the backing of the Barbican and Arts Council England and in collaboration with the London Borough of Waltham Forest and Create London, we will support our partners and explore new ways of working together, both over the festival weekend and beyond. If you have any ideas you would like to share please contact us at [email protected]
Every year we are blown away by the bold ideas and creativity of the Walthamstow Garden Party network, and now, more than ever, this creativity is needed to help us process and make sense of what is happening.
We will update this page when we can but for now, we wish you, your friends, families and neighbours all the very best during these tough times.
Barbican, London Borough of Waltham Forest and Create London
