Welcome To The ForestCelebrating the fact that its the first ever Mayor's London Borough of Culture, Waltham Forest is hosting Welcome to the Forest, a family-friendly opening weekend party. The opening show, Into The Forest, is a film by artists Greenaway & Greenaway that has been created in response to the themes of the borough's year, telling the story through the eyes of its residents and communities. Other activities include Nest, a light installation from Marshmallow Laser Feast set to a soundscape by composer Erland Cooper; Continental Drifts, transforming Forest Road into a neon lit winter carnival with the help of Gods Own Junkyard; and a new commission from local electronic duo Addictive TV.
