Our tenth year… isn’t that when you start being grown up?
Leytonstone Arts Trail has certainly grown up since its simple beginnings in 2008. We have seen hundreds of artists take part in this community event which is run completely by volunteers.
In its early years it was self-financing but we are very grateful to the Waltham Forest Ward Forum for the funds they have allocated to the arts trail in recent years. And we must also say a big thank you to our sponsor, Trading Places, who have provided important financial support for some time.
We have a diverse and interesting range of artists and venues for you to visit over the ten days of the trail. Some of our contributors are still at school, others left their schooldays behind a long time ago. But they all have one thing in common; a shared talent and love of art across the widest spectrum.
You can enjoy seeing the diversity of talent in Leytonstone in churches and cafes, in people’s gardens and in pubs. You can join in trails and games and perhaps it will make you think about what you could do to help next year.
You don’t have to be an artist to be involved. We are always looking for people to help organise the trail, to assist with the administration, to help set up events or monitor them when the trail is on. If you are interested in helping next year then do get in touch.
We hope you enjoy this year’s Leytonstone Arts Trail. Do let us know what you think or if you would like to get involved next year as an artist or as a helper. Enjoy!!
