Stage stars from across the capital including comedians and singers have confirmed their places at a four day festival in Walthamstow.

The fourth annual ‘Stow Festival 2014’ will be bigger and better than ever before, according to organizers who anticipate big crowds.

This year, the event will take place between September 11 and 14 and will include twenty venues in Walthamstow from the William Morris Gallery to a variety of pubs and the library.

Kicking off the event with an evening of musical comedy will be Barry Cryer, former panel member on the comedy show I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue.

Other headliners include John Otway who will be joined by Steve White & the Protest Family.

Walthamstow Acoustic Massive will present a special collaborative concert in the town square which will feature performances from Kuumba Youth Music, Grand Union Youth Orchestra and the London Community Gospel Choir.

Vestry House Museum will host a musical tribute to the fallen of the Great War.

Emma Betts, Co-Chair of Stow Festival, said, “This year’s Stow Festival will be the biggest and most varied programme we have ever put on.

“There will be live music in more than twenty venues across E17, and it will be a thoroughly enjoyable four days.”

Further artists and venues will be announced on in the coming weeks.
