All performances scheduled to take place after 19 December 2020 have been cancelled in line with updated government guidance.
Musicians will be taking to the streets of Waltham Forest this festive season. From 12-21 December, some residents in the borough will have music brought to their doorstep by the Winter Sessions - a series of 16 neighbourhood performances in the open air.
Winter Sessions is a new initiative by Waltham Forest Council to keep live music alive during lockdown and will feature contemporary choirs and brass bands among others.
As part of our celebration of music this December, The Music Halls Project, will be releasing Forest Sound Archive , a collection of music recorded in collaboration during lockdown by some of the best musicians, instrumentalists and music producers living and working in the borough. Earlier this year, more than a dozen musicians found a way to overcome the challenges of lockdown to create collaborative pieces in reaction to their isolation and the pandemic.
The Smiling Sessions: Winter Sessions, have created a series of new music videos recorded with older care home residents in collaboration with Shapeshifter Productions an Adult Social Care will be released during the Winter Sessions
All Waltham Forest Residents are invited to tune in to the Waltham Forest Civic Carol Concert from Friday 11 December. An annual highlight during the run-up to Christmas, the show will go online this year and has been pre-recorded for its premier on Friday.
We want you to be able to enjoy these events safely.
