Music in Wanstead Park

The weather forecast is currently much better for this year’s Music in Wanstead Park – being held this Saturday, 13 July – than it was last year when the bands and crowds had to battle against wind and rain.

The event has a full line-up, below, and for the first time includes an author’s tent featuring Wansteadium’s favourite Wanstead-based thriller writer Anya Lipska and others. The event starts at 2pm and is in front of the Temple. Park entrances are in Northumberland Avenue E12 and Warren Road E11, and tickets cost £10 – £4 for concessions. Contact contact@aldersbrook.info or tel 020 8989 4898 for more details.
