EARTHLY PARADISE TENT

The Earthly Paradise Tent will be the focal point for the best local and Barbican-based young creative talent hosting cross-arts work by and for young people. 

PERFORMERS OVER THE WEEKEND INCLUDE:

FELLOWSHIP ISLAND

Lloyd Park’s moated island will once again be taken over by a passionate brigade of food and drink producers, urban growers and local organisations exploring ways to cultivate a closer connection with nature and community in the city.

Inspired by William Morris’s visions of a free and fulfilled society, the island will offer a stimulating alternative take on what the future of London could look like. Artisan food and drink, wildlife workshops, upcycling activities, a health and wellbeing corner, plus talks, discussions, demos and performances presented by a host of grassroots groups will provide creative inspiration on how to build a stronger, more harmonious, resource saving community in Walthamstow and beyond.

This year Auntie Maureen and the Barbican will be looking to Keep It Green by asking all traders, partners, organisations and event-goers to reduce, reuse and recycle during the event.

 

Art For All, Family Area provides a bespoke programme of family friendly theatre, film, music, sports & making specifically designed for you and your family.

BE MAGNIFICENT CRAFT TRAIL

Create and the William Morris Gallery will team up for a fourth year to curate a family friendly workshop programme, this year inspired by the art school curriculum taught in the 1950s and 1960s which focused on practical craft making skills. The programme is part of the summer-long event 'Be Magnificent: Walthamstow School of Art 1957 - 1967' and supported by local business, The Stow Brothers.

Presented both inside the Gallery and outside on the lawns, children and adults will be invited to take part in activities exploring the art of craft and try their hand at ceramics, woodwork, printmaking and textiles and have the opportunity to purchase locally made items from the E17 Designer’s Market

As well as our key areas and stages, there will be lots of pop-up events, sporting activities, street food and bars around the park, including Real Food Festival’s mouth-watering line-up of street food, the Wild Card Craft Ale Tent, new Festival Bars for the extra thirsty and much more to be announced.
