A 17th century manor house, Baptist church and Tube station are among a host of new venues that have signed up for the Wanstead Art Trail. 

Now in its fifth year, the art trail, lasting for 16 days and starting on September 6, will include more than 150 residents and artists. 

Around 75 venues and locations will feature art work including Wanstead Tube station, Aldersbrook Baptist Church and Wanstead High Street's grade-II listed manor house gastro-pub. 

Shops, cafés, pubs, restaurants, churches and community centres will have areas transformed into mini-galleries, with many windows along the High Street displaying artwork.

Organiser Art Group Wanstead is encouraging Wanstead residents to take part in HomeFront, a project aimed at displaying children's work in gardens and front windows and themed around art and war. 

Prior to its launch, Art Trail leader Angela Daley said: "We want to make art accessible to everyone. 

"And more than that, we want people to have a go and enjoy being creative."

Highlights include workshops at the Tube station on launch day from noon until 3pm, a peace dove workshop during Sunday's famers market on September 7, an open day with demonstrations and clay workshops at Wanstead House Community Association on September 13, and a flamingo fair with life drawings on September 20 at Wanstead Library.

Visitors can add their own peace symbols and messages at the artists' stand on Christchurch Green set up for the Wanstead Festival on September 14.  

Admission is free to all events.
