Leytonstone Festival, Arts Trail and the Olympic Torch

Leytonstone Arts Trail 2012Festival and Arts Trail

It’s the last weekend of Leytonstone Festival and Leytonstone Arts Trail and there’s still a packed programme of Festival events and art appearing all over the area, not just in the 16 venues taking part but also in people’s windows and gardens.

With the sun reckoned to make a much delayed appearance it promises to be a perfect weekend to enjoy these events.

Some of the pictures at Norlington Road Studios — it’s worth a visit as there are many more to see. Entry is free.

Do look at the official programmes on the Leytonstone Festival and Leytonstone Arts Trail websites/Facebook pages, however, to check for any last minute updates to the programmes, in case I have missed anything or where you may have to book in advance or numbers may be limited. If you spot an error, please let me know.

The Stone Space is the headquarters for Leytonstone Arts Trail 2012 and is showing samples from over 70 artists. You can collect a Trail Guide from The Stone Space and find out about the venues taking part in this year’s Arts Trail.
