Revealed: The line-up for the biggest Wanstead Fringe yet

The programme for this year’s Wanstead Fringe has been published – and it’s by far the biggest in the nine-year history of the Fringe.

This year it will include THREE plays – one coming directly to Wanstead from the Edinburgh Fringe.

There is also the inaugural Wanstead Book Festival which will feature poet Hannah Lowe (winner of the Costa Book Award), the BBC’s Justin Webb, and controversial historian Otto English.

There is also comedy, live music, opera, a brass band, a blow-up planetarium, talks, masterclasses, pottery, the ever-popular Jumble Trail, and more besides.

All listings and tickets are available now at

This is the ninth Wanstead Fringe, which is organised by the Wanstead Fringe Association, a group of residents. It has been built entirely without public money, and is funded by ticket sales and by its generous sponsors who this year include Petty Son and Prestwich, Edwards Duthie Shamash, THP Chartered Accountants, The Wanstead Society, Eton Manor RFC and The Duke.
