Venue: Lloyd Park, E17
Appetite Market Place hours: 12pm – 5pm (hours tbc)

As part of a free weekend programme of music, theatre, dance, arts, crafts and food, Artillery has been invited to curate Escape to Artillery Island. The Artillery area will include E17 Art Trail art for sale, a bar, picnic lawn, children’s activities, lazy afternoon seating, storytelling themed entertainment, walkabout acts plus the local Appetite Festival food market.

The Appetite Market Place aims to give local food producers a platform within the Walthamstow Garden Party festival site and is complimentary to the Real Food Festival offer. In 2014 the festival attracted 34,000 visitors over the weekend. We have been provided with infra-structure to deliver the market place but are not funded. Stall booking fees will cover some of the production costs and small fees for performers who encourage audiences to spend time in the market place. Appetite Market Place is lovingly produced in partnership with Auntie Maureen.

The Walthamstow Garden Party is co-produced by Barbican, Create London and Waltham Forest Council. To offer other kinds of provision or stalls please contact them directly. See
