The past week has been the most amazing Wanstead Fringe yet, with nearly every event sold out. We had nearly 800 people at the theatre, more than a hundred at the opera, three sold-out comedy nights, one sold out comedy afternoon for kids, 120 Jumble Trail stalls, 300 people at the Kinema (above), talks, demos, live music (below) and more and more and more…
The point of the Wanstead Fringe, which is run by volunteers, is to support and encourage cultural activities in Wanstead. On behalf of the Fringe Association, Wansteadium hopes people will agree that has certainly been the case this year.
And because it’s impossible to mention every event, or thank every person who was involved, here is a selection of visual memories of the week.

Loved our @WansteadFringe evening @LaBakerie last night with Fabian and Frank. Learned a lot about making fruit and almond tarts, but also about their community-minded approach. Eat there, drink there, buy there. You won’t be disappointed. pic.twitter.com/w9XDkwfr3y
