Thanks too to all those supporters who donated to help fund the Fringe, and to our sponsors – T-Space, The Manor House, The Duke, Exaprint, Vision Redbridge Culture and Leisure, Mario’s Shake Shack, and especially Petty Son and Prestwich whose continued support made the whole thing possible again.

*The whole thing was co-ordinated by the Wanstead Fringe Association, a not-for-profit group of local volunteers which exists to “co-ordinate and support artistic and cultural activities in Wanstead”. Anyone who is interested in getting involved is invited to email

  1. A long and well deserved list of thank yous. We participated in the jumble trail, a throughly enjoyable experience for all, kids sold some of their toys. Luckily they didn’t come back with too many new ones!! A night time photography walk with Geoff and the Kinema (Mahna Mahna) and the wanstead festival, managing to come back with two plastic Katana’s (as my 8yr pointed out, ninja swords to the rest of us) and a coconut!!! Thank you all.

    Ps – If you need a steward for next years events, I know someone who would like to volunteer and looks good in high vis.

  2. Loved being part of the Wanstead Fringe.The Film Night at the Cricket Club was a cracking idea and well attended. It was a pleasure to chat to so many lovely children [and parents]. Also enjoyed the Saturday Comedy Night at the Golf Club. Next year I’ll try to get to more events.I’ve lived here for 26 years and it’s great that lots of other people now think Wanstead is rather special too.
