After many years being run by the Aldersbrook Families Association, the one-day family festival had been discontinued after a last outing in 2016.
Caitlin, who lives on the Aldersbrook estate, told the Ilford Recorder: -
“I wanted the event to come back: it was really missed last year. It is nice to have something that brings the whole community together, so we decided to take it on.”
Caitlin, a singer, had previously organised her own tours across the country.
As in the past, the 2018 Music in Wanstead Park was very much a local family event, with fairground rides, circus skills, and a very popular Punch and Judy.
There was lots of support from 'CHAOS', a local charity for underprivileged children, who helped with the setting up, the children's activities and of course the Pimms, which went down very smoothly on such a hot day!
“It was lovely to see the crowd up and dancing the Charleston in front of the stage as the sun went down on a lovely day”.
“How fantastic to see so many happy children running about, playing and dancing in the Temple Enclosure - what more could any child want?”
Estate agent Stow Brothers, in Wanstead High Street, sponsored the event.
