From the Forest is London’s newest Theatre and Arts Festival, taking place in Waltham Forest from 21st June to 1st July. Starting out as a four day festival in a single venue in the Winter of 2016, the festival will now expand to over 60 shows spread across multiple venues over two weeks. Championing the creation of new performances in great venues the festival aims to provides an affordable platform for artists to showcase their material. Anyone and everyone is welcome to apply to be a part of the festival.

Created by Walthamstow based Beartuza Theatre Company supported by Waltham Forest Council through funding from the Great Places: Cultural Connections Programme, From The Forest Theatre and Arts Festival is focused on celebrating local venues and artists whilst showing visiting artists that Waltham Forest is home to a diverse theatre going audience.

​Creative Connections: Culture for All has been supported by a grant from Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to bring From The Forest Theatre & Arts Festival to life.
