Love the Lea festival

A free festival celebrating the Lea takes place next Sunday (17 August). The all-day event is just down the river, in the Walthamstow Marshes picnic area (opposite Springfield Park), and features live music, boat trips, sound walks and more.

The event also features #urbanflowevent (rivercities): a cross-arts, public participation project that forms part of series of works linking Sweden, Canada and our own Lea Valley. People are invited to come to a practice session and dress rehearsal on Saturday 16 August 4-6 p.m. (same place). Children aged 9-13 are also required to perform a dance in the festival and a dance workshop will take place on Friday 15 August at the Sea Cadets Building, Spring Hill, E5. Additionally people are invited to contribute river/marshes photography to Sirenscrossing’s new blog site and/or facebook page. Organisers Carolyn Deby and photographer AnnaCarin Isaksson are also inviting people to attend a creative workshop on Thursday 14 August either 10 a.m. to 12 noon or in the evening 6-8 (as agreed with participants). Find out more on their tumbler or contact Carolyn Deby on
