Waltham Forest London Borough of Culture

The role

Could you be a Legend of the Forest? Waltham Forest London Borough of Culture needs our residents to get involved and help make 2019 an unforgettable year.

Their army of volunteers will be named ‘Legends of the Forest’ and will be central to ensuring the success of Waltham Forest’s Borough of Culture year in 2019.


There will be a wide range of opportunities for the Legends of the Forest to get involved in, from community gardening, greeting visitors, wayfinding, assisting backstage or perhaps playing the role of an extra. There will be lots to see and do working alongside artists, organisers and residents.

Groundwork London will be on board to help deliver this programme, ensuring the Legends are ready for 2019 and beyond that, continuing a legacy of volunteering across the borough.

Whether you want to develop new skills, share your expertise or meet new people, the experience will be legendary.

Be one of the hundreds of local legends next year.

Legends of the Forest is supported by Great Place and part-funded through Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
