Scenes from the Fringe

Despite the rainy start the Wanstead Fringe got going on Saturday by sheltering under awnings, gazebos and umbrellas, including the fantastic human brass section Jonny Holliday, above, who played at the Duke Street party. And there’s a good forecast – actually a very good forecast – for the rest of the week, so fingers are crossed for the many events yet to come.

On Sunday children will be shown the secrets of comics and cartoons (in a now sold-out event), and on Monday there’s Jingle Bop, Musical Memories and a demonstration by Fabien from Nice Croissant and Kevin from Wanstead Fish.

Some of the other highlights from this week include a bring-your-own poem session, Scent and Scandal on Wednesday evening and the always popular Wanstead Fringe Comedy Night on Friday. Full details are at the Wanstead Fringe site.

But here are some of the scenes from the start of the Fringe.

Restaurant Week also got started with several Wanstead restaurants , including Bombetta, taking part


Bookswap outside Fringe HQ, the Cherry Tree cafe, will be there again on Sunday. Come along, take a book. Bring one for others to share if you’ve got one.
