Walthamstow Wetlands is a 211 hectare nature reserve, located 15 minutes from central London.
With an abundance of wildlife and rich industrial heritage, the site has now been redeveloped into Europe’s largest urban wetland and opened to the wider public for the very first time in 150 years.
To celebrate the Chelsea Fringe Festival, Walthamstow Wetlands will be home to a POP-UP collection of creations by local artisans. Collaborators include Borrowed Light Floral Studio, The Local Honey Man, Willow Weavers and Jacques Nimki, who will be repurposing locally sourced materials to create fantastic displays of the resident flora and fauna.
Come and join in the fun whilst learning all about the important conservational value of Walthamstow Wetlands. Just a ten minutes’ walk from Blackhorse Road Tube Station on the Victoria Line, the Botanical Sculpture Trail will be open every day during the Fringe.
