WALTHAM FOREST
FUNGUS FORTNIGHT 

2-17 October 2021

Two weeks of fungi-fuelled art, inspiration and fun

Join the London Fungus Network for films, forays, workshops and art installations celebrating the Fungal Kingdom/Queendom.


Straddling the boundary of urban east London and rural Essex, Waltham Forest is one of London’s greenest Boroughs. Its parks, woodlands and urban landscapes are home to wild mushrooms all year round – if you let them find you. 

 

Booking is essential via Eventbrite. Events will be held in-person in line with the latest Covid-guidelines.

Fungus Fortnight is supported by Waltham Forest Council.
