Here at Walthamstow Scene, we like to get to know the people that make the magic happen in E17. Bands, artists, comedians, politicans, local businesses – we love to chat, and we hope you do too. Starting in 2011, we’re finding out what makes people tick in Walthamstow. Check out the interviews below.
The Hornbeam community cafe at 458 Hoe St is something of a hidden gem on the Walthamstow scene. Not only is it a delicious organic cafe, it is also host to a range of events including a book club, music and poetry nights, and regular BBQs. Rachel Grasby is the cafe/event organiser at Hornbeam, so we thought we’d have a chat with her about all things E17 here.
Dark Captain Light Captain are a Walthamstow-based band with an impressive track-record. Their second album is set for release in Summer 2011, and they have big plans for festivals and touring throughout 2011. We caught up with Dan and Mike from the band here.
