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 and a designers’ market.
This year you can catch fly husband and wife duo Amadou & Mariam, Brazilian songstress Tassia Reis, Colombian salsa band LA-33 and jazz singer-songwriter Zara McFarlane on the music stage. Plus readings from the Barbican Young Poets, pop-up performances from Drum Works, shreddings showcases from Skatepark Jam and a bar from Wild Card Brewery.
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.
