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.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
