London Borough of Culture 2019 Info Hub



Waltham Forest is proud to be the first ever Mayor’s London Borough of Culture in 2019!

Winning the London Borough of Culture competition is a once in a lifetime opportunity to put Waltham Forest and its fantastic people on the map.

We launched our bid to win London Borough of Culture one year ago at the Walthamstow Garden Party. And over 14,000 people pledged their support to help bring this amazing award home. Come and speak to the team at this year’s Walthamstow Garden Party and find out how you can get involved in our spectacular year of culture.

There will be plenty of opportunities for residents, artists, businesses, schools and young people to take part in London Borough of Culture 2019, from volunteering to creative participation.
