Wanstead’s Festival of Nightingales has been postponed.

“The fundraiser and organising for the festival have had to be put back as Redbridge Council are not granting permission for community road closures this year. In the meantime – as a prelude to a festival in 2022 – we are hoping to organise the painting of a mural on Nightingale Lane, some community-led improvements to Nightingale Green and some other safe activities that don’t involve road closures,” said Kathy Taylor.
