Keeping arts and culture at the heart of our communities
The first ever London Borough of culture
Waltham Forest Council
Waltham Forest will be the first ever London Borough of Culture in 2019. The award from the Mayor of London will ensure that arts and culture are placed at the heart of the community. Waltham Forest Council put the theme “Radicals, Makers and Fellowship” at the heart of their bid to be London Borough of Culture. The council will work with local residents, artists and creatives, creating a memorable cultural extravaganza. The programme of events will shine a light on the diversity, character and cultures of the borough, celebrating the communities that live there.
