Waltham Forest is having a Pride festival, including parade, for the 2nd year in a row.
10am-12pm: Pride breakfast, at the William the Fourth pub on Leyton High Road.
11am: Parade assembles outside same pub.
11.30: Parade sets off up Hoe St. towards Town Square Gardens.
12.30: Parade arrives at Town Square Gardens - 0.9 miles route.
Parade must stick to the pavement.
Festival (& stalls) - 10am-6pm:
In Walthamstowe Town Square Gardens
(volunteers wanted for a stall for us).
This is next to Walthamstowe Central tube station. Chat, enjoy acts on stage, find out about local LGBT+ groups/events/venues and maybe help us plan something more local here in future?
Also going on through the day (handy if weather gets too much/need facilities):
12pm-1am: Party at the Chequers Pub, 145 High Street.
9pm-2am: Afterparty at Mint
Help them fund a better Pride (with rewards offered by local businesses), via https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/WalthamForestPride/

Hoping to have a stall: need a table and chair there - found a way to buy a table nearby I think but if you have one (e.g. folding decorators table/other lightweight non-valuable practical one), could you bring one in good time for the start/offer to have it picked up and borrowed?
Walthamstowe Central station is at the northern end of the Victoria underground line and the town square gardens are only a short distance (typically a few minutes walk).
