Between 6,000 and 10,000 people were estimated to have enjoyed the Wanstead Festival on Christchurch Green earlier this month, with residents also cycling and playing on a car-free High Street, which was closed to traffic to promote active and sustainable travel options and clean air initiatives.

“The festival and our High Street event was a great opportunity for the community to come back together after a difficult 18 months,” said Councillor Jo Blackman.

The annual festival is run by Vision Redbridge Culture and Leisure.
