The first day of the Fringe, which kicks off on Saturday, is going to be a belter. Weirdest of all will be a papier mache cow parading up and down the High Street – a tribute from artist Karen Humpage to the days when cows roamed freely around these parts. Stop it and take a selfie.
Elsewhere, Elsa Arnold, a young woman whose mission is to encourage people to show kindness to each other, is leading the first of a series of events which will, she hope, give people practical ideas of how to make Wanstead a better place.
And the traditional opening big event for the Fringe – the Duke Street Party – is going to be everything we have come to expect: great music, food and company really getting things off to a magnificent start.
All the first day’s events are as follows (including tonight’s eve-of-fringe Stargazing):https://wansteadfringe.wansteadium.com/event/stargazing-evening/2019-09-06/ https://wansteadfringe.wansteadium.com/event/the-community-kindness-trail/ https://wansteadfringe.wansteadium.com/event/local-makers-market/ https://wansteadfringe.wansteadium.com/event/crime-writer-isabelle-grey-screen-writing-seminar/ https://wansteadfringe.wansteadium.com/event/the-cows-come-back-to-wanstead/ https://wansteadfringe.wansteadium.com/event/the-duke-street-party/ https://wansteadfringe.wansteadium.com/event/wanstead-art-trail/ https://wansteadfringe.wansteadium.com/event/book-launch/
