Wandle Fortnight 2018

This year's Wandle Fortnight will take place between Saturday September 8 and Sunday September 23.

It is an opportunity to celebrate the River Wandle and its surroundings - "a celebration run by the community, for the community".

Last year there were over 70 events and activities across the fortnight - if you have an idea for this year's celebrations, are looking for inspiration, or simply want to know more about the Wandle Fortnight, visit, or take a look at this newsletter.

All registered events and activities will be included in the Wandle Fortnight programme and receive free promotion and publicity.
