We wish all readers a happy Fringe day — yes it’s the start of the 8th Wanstead Fringe today, a fortnight of cultural and community activities to make the most of living in this marvellous place.
The Fringe starts in earnest this evening with the launch of the Wanstead Bookclub, a new forum for booklovers to share recommendations and enthusiasms with other readers. The launch is taking place online on Friday evening at 7pm, and all Wansteadium readers are invited to join in – just go to the event page below and click RSVP to get a link.https://wansteadfringe.org/event/launch-of-wanstead-bookclub/
On Saturday there is the annual Duke Street Party, as well as the Makers’ Market and a photo clinic for budding photographers by Geoff Wilkinson. On Sunday there is the return of Jazz Vespers, a magnificently cool church service in Christ Church.
