Throwing the spotlight on Walthamstow is the highly acclaimed HighTide Festival which turns the Town Square Gardens into a celebration of live performance from 26 September – 8 October with a state-of-the-art temporary theatre, The Mix. Just moments from Walthamstow Central station, The Mix will play host to a packed programme of irresistible events including world premiere and award-winning plays, cabaret, family shows and more. For the best laugh-a-minute, original, and observant comedy the circuit offers, catch Dane Baptiste, Phil Wang, Suzi Ruffell, Tez Ilyas and friends, fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe right here in Walthamstow. Local foodie favourites Night Feast E17 will offer a variety of local street food options and there’s also a pop-up bar with a range of delicious drinks – the perfect place to hang out pre-show or just to soak up the festival atmosphere. Three minutes’ walk away, Mirth, Marvel and Maud will host readings of newly commissioned plays, performances by brilliant local artists and FREE late night parties.
