Day one of the Fringe

It’s here at last, the third Wanstead Fringe! The first big event will be the Jumble Trail which is taking place from noon until 5pm (not at the times listed in the programme) with 77 stalls confirmed. You can see where they are on the map below – or even better, for a live version of the map go to the Jumble Trail page.


The full line-up of the Fringe week is here at but here are some things we’re highlighting:

* The good forecast for Sunday bodes well for the lunchtime picnic and bookswap on Christchurch Green. Bring your picnic with you (or buy something from the Farmers’ Market), and don’t forget to bring a book to swap with someone. You’ll be able to listen to the East London Chorus singing, AND take part in the Trial of William Pole-Tylney-Long-Wellesley (details to follow).

*At 4pm children’s animator Chris Drew (Mike the Knight is one of his) will be doing a workshop for children at the Oxfam Shop. Places are free but limited and need to be booked via the website (children must be accompanied by an adult).

*More to follow – but to find out exclusively (for now) what is the marvellous family film being shown on Friday night at the Kinema, download the Wanstead Fringe app or use the buttons below.
