Disability Festival In The Park (Landscape) Ver 5

Welcome

Back to Life, Back to Reality!


Redbridge is hosting its annual disability awareness festival on Wednesday 24 August 2022 from 12pm to 5pm at Christchurch Green, Woodbine Place, Wanstead, E11 2RH. This is our first time face - to face sine 2019!


We are inviting you to be part of this exciting event which will reach out to thousands of people across the borough and beyond.


The festival provides people with a disability and mental ill-health the opportunity to be involved in an activity that most people take for granted, as well as the chance to enjoy a feel good community event which can help improve their sense of wellbeing.

Here’s some of the feedback from our event in 2019:
"It was a wonderful event and super to see all those with disabilities of all ages, dancing and really enjoying the brilliant music - well done all"

"We went early with our baby granddaughter and it was great, lovely warm atmosphere, lots of happy smiling faces. Sincere congratulations to all the organisers. A wonderful community event"

The festival depends of generosity of donors and anything anyone can give really does help make a difference, visit Disability Festival in the Park – JustGiving to help us raise funds.
