Programmed by the Barbican and Create London in partnership with Waltham Forest Council, the Walthamstow Garden Party is a free two-day festival in E17 that combines a cracking music line-up with plenty of family fun: theatre, dancing, comedy, circus, art activities with the William Morris Gallery and a designers’ market.
This year you can catch global sounds from Sierra Leone's psychedelic Janka Nabay, Ghanaian DJ Katapila and his collection of acid house and techno, New Dehli band The Ska Vengers and their skittish ska-punk, plus jazzy funk from local collective The Heliocentrics.
Well worth venturing up the Victoria line for.

Amazing free festival for all ages - much bigger than you'd imagine and 10 mins from the tube. Music, food, arts (great craft tent) ... Walthamstow's one of the coolest corners of London these days ...
This was awesome last year and will no doubt be again this year. It's free to get in and once full is one in one out so turn up early! Good food and beer options, very family friendly and great music and theatre too.
