Arts in the Park
On Saturday and Sunday there’s art and music and more at Arts in the Park in Langthorne Park, Leytonstone. See the Waltham Forest Guardian for more details.
Langthorne Park is easily reached on the 257 bus from Stratford and Walthamstow.
The Stone Space in Church Lane, has a particularly interesting exhibiton, which features works about Leytonstone called ‘1 day’s walk’. Conveniently it’s only 1 minute’s walk from Leytonstone tube, where of course you can also see the Hitchcock Murals as a refresher for the Sir Alfred Hitchcock festival coming up soon. On Saturday 23 you can also see printed photos from the online Leytonstone Museum.
Just round the corner, with arts, craft and homemade food will be the Lion Heart Market this Saturday.
