Inspired by our year’s themes of Radicals, Makers and Fellowship Welcome to the Forest will be the biggest party Waltham Forest has ever seen and everyone is invited.


Everyone is welcome to the forest as we celebrate the shared past, present and future of this corner of North East London that we’ve chosen to call home.

Waltham Forest Town Hall will be transformed through a high octane audio/visual show created in a unique collaboration between musician/producer Talvin Singh OBE and video artists Greenaway & Greenaway, students of Leyton Sixth Form College and electronic music producers from the borough.

They will be joined by a new commission from world-renowned artists Addictive TV presenting the soundtrack of the borough through the video remixing of Waltham Forest’s rich and diverse musical talent.

Locally based international festival curators Continental Drifts will transform Forest Road into a neon-lit, celebratory winter carnival featuring groups and individuals drawn from the borough and beyond.

In Lloyd Park, epic lighting installation Nest from artists Marshmallow Laser Feast will transform the familiar into the fantastic, accompanied by a transcendent soundscape from composer Erland Cooper created in collaboration with local choirs and schools.

International in scale and ambition but telling the local stories of this place, it's time to say to the world "welcome to the forest".
