Across Waltham Forest this Winter, there are lots of different activities and events to get involved in. We caught up with Warren and Storm, founder and event organiser at Patchworks to learn more about what's on this winter in Lea Bridge.

Can you tell us a bit about Patchworks?

Patchworks opened in 2021. We are part furniture factory, part café, and part events space! We see ourselves as a place for the community to spend time in and have lots of activities happening for local people to get involved with all year round.

Tell us about some of the events you have planned over the Winter period.

We are working with partners on lots of activities this winter! Highlights include our Culture Market on Saturday 3 December 11am to 7pm. Come and celebrate the areas diverse culture, explore our stalls and help support emerging entrepreneurs. We will be hosting our Flea and Sustainable Makers Market Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 December, a great chance to pick up last-minute winter gifts. We will also be holding our regular open mic nights through out December. Our jazz night on Friday 2 December is not one to miss!  

We will be back selling trees in the lead up to Christmas and will be serving festive treats in the café too.

This is just a taste, we have a jam-packed calendar of activities programmed throughout the month. Check out our Instagram page for full details of all our events and exact dates and times of everything we have going on.

What are you most looking forward to about the events?

Being able to spread some festive cheer and chatting to all the residents that come by. Winter in Lea Bridge feels special!

Why are local customers important to you over the Christmas period?

It is important that independent businesses in the area are supported and able to keep going now more than ever, local customers help with that!
