High Street Wanstead will be closed to traffic between Grove Park and Wanstead Place on 18 September (from 8am to 8pm) to create a car-free Wanstead Festival.
“We’re really looking forward to this year’s Wanstead Festival and Fringe. These events go from strength to strength, with more visitors each year. The road closure means more people can explore the High Street, and children can play and try out bikes in the cycle fun zone. There will also be information stands about electric vehicles, active travel and recycling,” said Councillor Jo Blackman.
The annual festival takes place on Christ Church Green from 11am to 6pm, featuring two entertainment stages, a classic car display, children’s rides, a petting zoo, craft hub, dog competition, holistic zone, sporting activities and local business and community group stalls.
