Waltham Forest London Borough of Culture 2019 - the story so far - May 2019

Watch the recent London Borough of Culture Legacy video for Waltham Forest.

"Being named as the Mayor of London’s first-ever London Borough of Culture is a huge honour. Our residents feel a massive sense of pride in Waltham Forest and an enormous responsibility to deliver the full promise of the year and demonstrate the power of local culture."

Councillor Clare Coghill, leader of Waltham Forest Council 

About us


Waltham Forest is the Mayor's first ever London Borough of Culture for 2019 and the recipient of the Municipal Journal's Local Authority of the Year 2019. It is more than living up to its reputation as the creative choice for the capital. There is a buzz about our corner of London. People want to live here, raise a family and start a business here. The area is bursting with culture and energy, bringing with it many opportunities, such as new creative workspace opening up for small businesses, cultural activities taking place throughout the year and heritage venues getting a new lease of life.

Added to plans for 18,000 homes in the next decade ­is the vision to regenerate our historic Town Hall campus, as well as the delivery of sporting facilities, social infrastructure and green space. Meanwhile, a £18 total million investment in Leyton tube station will ensure our connectivity and transport infrastructure can cope with the demands of a growing borough.
