Judith has now cleared out from her High Street shop, leaving this farewell to her faithful customers.
The long-awaited renovations at the former British Queen are now fully under way. The former pub and restaurant is being converted into flats after a series of unsuccessful attempts at reinvention.
The full programme for the Wanstead Fringe will be available here (and through your letterbox) from Saturday morning. But now is the time to sign up if you want to take part in the Wanstead Fringe Jumble Trail. It will take place on Saturday 16 September from noon until 4pm – which gives you plenty of time to sort through what you want to sell.
You can sign up directly through the Jumble Trail website at this page.
We’re delighted to confirm that the Wanstead Fringe 2017 will take place between 9 and 16 September. It’s the fifth Fringe, and will be by far the biggest yet.
It’s going to include some of the events which have become key parts of the Fringe, including:
- The Duke Street Party on Saturday 9 September
- Comedy (with the returning star Paul Sinha) on Thursday 14 September
- Chris Gifford talking about his time in Squeeze at the Wanstead Tap (already sold out!)
- The Wanstead Fringe Jumble Trail on Saturday 16 September
- And the return of the Wanstead KINEMA on the evening of Saturday 16 September.
The full programme which will have more than 30 events taking place all around Wanstead will be published in the next week or so when tickets will also be available. Wansteadium or our sister site wansteadfringe.org will be the best places to keep up with what’s going on – and you can sign up for a Fringe e-mail newsletter here. The Wanstead Fringe is also on Facebook and Twitter.
*The Wanstead Fringe is once again being supported by its founding sponsors, Petty Son and Prestwich, and this year is also supported by solicitors Edwards Duthie.
The death of Doctor in the House author Richard Gordon is a moment to remember again this picture from the opening scenes of the TV programme which were filmed outside what is now Clock Court. File under useful Wanstead trivia.
There is literally a pot of gold at or near the George pub, in case anyone was smart enough to be searching on Monday evening. It’s possible the rainbow actually ended over the new M&S food shop, which makes some sense. Perhaps it will inspire the company to get on with the shop opening.
