London Wildlife Festival Cancelled

London Wildlife Festival Cancelled

Sadly, the difficult decision has been made to cancel London Wildlife Festival on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th August. This is due to forecast winds in excess of 40 miles an hour, at Walthamstow Wetlands, over the weekend.

This decision comes after careful consideration and consultation with the operations team onsite. The festival is due to be held almost entirely outdoors and we therefore cannot proceed safely, in the forecast weather conditions.

The Friday late session on 9th August will go ahead as planned, as this is held indoors.

If you have bought tickets for the Festival via Eventbrite, your tickets will be refunded automatically and your refund will be received in up to 5 working days.

We are so disappointed that the festival has had to be cancelled and really appreciate your understanding on the matter. The London Wildlife Festival will be back though – please look out for updates from us soon.


Walthamstow Wetlands has opened today however the 1,2,3 path remains closed due to wind blown trees that remain unsafe. The main path on the south side will be the only available route. The north side will be opened shortly once paths are cleared.
