Culture and Creativity in Walthamstow
We want to hear from you
Walthamstow has an active cultural and creative scene, which is supported by the highest concentration of arts and cultural venues in Waltham Forest, mainly located around Hoe Street.
Building on the momentum as the first London Borough of Culture in 2019, there is a strong agenda for cultural growth across the borough, with an exciting number of small, medium and large-scale cultural and creative projects taking place since then such as the refurbishment of Soho Theatre Walthamstow (former Granada Cinema), The William Morris Gallery and Fellowship Square.
The Council is now considering opportunities to strengthen Walthamstow as a cultural and creative centre for the borough. Our aim is to better understand the cultural and creative businesses and networks existing in Waltham Forest and to help the development of new ones.
As we recognise each place is unique and people experience culture in different ways, we would like to start by learning from people who live, visit, work and play in our town centre.
Walthamstow There are exciting new opportunities to develop and complement Walthamstow’s current cultural attractions and we invite you to check our new website Lets Talk Walthamstow to learn more about all the opportunities to take part and share your views.
