It’s the last day of the festival, but do you think we’re slowing down? No way. There is a ton of music happening today around Walthamstow, to help you squeeze every last drop out of the weekend. Here’s your guide to Stow Festival Sunday.
The music kicks off at midday at Wild Card with the Electronic17 ‘The Future is Electronic’ all-day closing party. Laptop Junkie, PoP Campaign (pictured) and Innoversions are among the acts playing this afternoon. Meanwhile, the Music History Walking Tour starts at midday, from Small Wonder Records on Hoe Street.
BeBop Baby present an afternoon of family-friendly live music at Walthamstow Trades Hall from 1pm, with Nkomba performing and Olaf S East DJing. At St Barnabas, the Waltham Forest Community Choir host their open ‘Opera in the Stow – Give it a go!’ workshop from 1.15pm. This is open to anyone, registration starts at 1pm.
There’s an afternoon of acoustic singer/songwriters on the Hucks Cafe stage, featuring Marc Oliver, Sofia Palm (pictured) and Joseph Wander. Elsewhere, the Punk Waltham Forest series of talks continues at 2.45pm (NOT 6pm as previously advertised) at Vestry House with Small Wonder Remembered, featuring John Robb, Geoff Deane from the Leyton Buzzards and The Shend. This is sold out, but there may be returns on the door.
At St Barnabas, we are delighted to present opera as part of Stow Festival for the first time, with Gillian Keith and Tom Randle performing at 4.30pm. Elsewhere, St Mary’s Church host Songs of Praise from 7pm.
At the Queens Arms from 5pm there’s music from the Lisa Hedlund Trio, Curryoke and more. This is a benefit show for the Emergency Night Shelter, and features a raffle with some excellent prizes (not least, some gorgeous Stow Festival shirts!). Get down there and show them some support.
The festival goes out with a bang this evening. The Electronic17 party at Wild Card features sets from the wonderful Leif (pictured), Kieron Mahon and Kat Richmond, among others. Nearby, Gods Own Junkyard host a Silent Disco from 4pm. Last but by no means least, Walthamstow Folk present Mumbo Jumbo on the Rose & Crown stage.
That’s your lot! Something for everyone there. Have a brilliant day!
