Welcome to the Forest

On Friday 11th January, Waltham Forest began their journey as London’s first Borough of Culture. The borough kicked off with a three day event called Welcome to the Forest, the festivities were held at the Town Hall and other venues throughout the borough. Welcome to the Forest included lights, music and projected videos onto the Town Hall itself.


Several of our pupils were interviewed by ITV News at One Hoe Street alongside pupils from Sir George Monoux College, about their thoughts on the exciting opportunity ahead of Waltham Forest and its young people.


One pupil said “it was exciting and it was a wonderful experience to take part in being filmed by ITV News. The light show was beautiful and the town halls production was awe-inspiring”.
