Festival Partners

We are incredibly thankful to a number of partners who we are working with to deliver the inaugural HighTide Festival Walthamstow.

Waltham Forest Council 

Waltham Forest Council is delighted to be partnering with HighTide Theatre for the first time this year.  Whilst the borough has a thriving cultural scene we do not have any bespoke theatres and a recent survey of residents showed that this was the cultural provision they felt was most lacking.  By bringing the Festival to Walthamstow Town Centre we are able to provide theatre right on residents’ doorsteps. Some of our talented local artists are included in the programme and a number of our young people will have the chance to gain first-hand experience of a professional theatre. We’re proud that our borough is home to one of the most diverse populations in the country and it’s of the utmost importance to us that our cultural programme reflects this diversity. We’re sure that the range of shows on offer will appeal to a wide cross-section of our residents. We also look forward to welcoming visitors from far and wide to experience Waltham Forest’s creative buzz.

Lorna Lee, Head of Culture & Heritage, Waltham Forest Council



Central Estates

We are delighted that Central Estates are the headline sponsor for HighTide Festival 2017:

It’s no secret, we’ve got a soft spot for our hometown. We share our love for the area by reinvesting in community initiatives and activities, just like this one. Through our sponsorship for the inaugural HighTide festival we hope to see the community come together to enjoy this fantastic range of performances. Enjoy the show.
