There’ll also be a brand new commission from local electronic duo Addictive TV who’ve composed a unique piece of music created by sampling audio and video of Waltham Forest’s very own musical talent.
Festival curators Continental Drifts will transform Forest Road into a neon-lit winter carnival in partnership with Gods Own Junkyard.

Night and Day: 1930s Fashion and Photographs – Fashion and Textile Museum, 83 Bermondsey Street, SE1 3XF – 11:00am to 5:00pm – £9.90
As a decade of design, the Thirties saw off the excess of the Jazz Age and ushered in the utilitarianism of World War II. As the flapper grew up, so too did her fashions. The new silhouettes of the 1930s played with the hard edged chic seen in the Art Deco and Moderne styles, the unexpected as seen in the surrealists and the sensuality of silver screen sirens.
The exhibition explores the day and evening styles of the decade, complemented by photographs of the stars who championed them.
