Published: 10 July 2024

The Redbridge Disability Festival, a vibrant celebration set in the heart of Wanstead, east London, takes place on Wednesday, 17 July, and promises to be one of the biggest ever.
From midday till 7pm, Christchurch Green in Wanstead, east London, will be alive with a diverse range of music, promising a vibrant and exciting atmosphere. There's something for everyone, ensuring a day of celebration and unity, where all are welcome to join in the festivities.
On the main stage, the theme is PARTY TOGETHER, celebrating the skilled performers and DJs with disability. The stage will be alive with unforgettable hits from the stars of 1990s music chart-toppers Rozalla, Baby D and Alison Limerick.
Redbridge Council organises the Disability Festival in the Park, an inclusive festival accessible to all. It includes British Sign Language interpreters and partners such as One Place East, Redbridge Forum and Uniting Friends. 2024 is a significant year for the annual Disability Festival in the Park as it reaches its 10th birthday
The much-loved free event is the pinnacle of Disability Pride Month UK 2024 – a month-long celebration in July, marking a significant milestone in the journey towards equality and inclusion.
Cllr Mark Santos, Cabinet Member for Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Health, said: "We are immensely proud of this unique festival and our work to provide a genuinely accessible festival for London's disabled community. It is one of the most important events in our event calendar.  The festival is incredible to experience, and with the stellar lineup of musical artists set to perform, it will be one to remember."
The festival is free to all, and accessibility is key. As an integral part of the summer festival season, the Disability Festival in the Park is a refreshing and fast-growing expression of human potential—and a rare live platform for disabled artists.
This year, the organisers are delighted to partner with TATE Modern, which will be hosting a special art exhibition and workshop-themed Local Heroes. Also partnering is Central Saint Martins University of Fashion, which will exhibit a fashion collection for wheelchair users in collaboration with Paralympian gold medallists Samanta Bullock and Lily Mills in a special styling workshop and catwalk show at the event.
The festival is a finalist in the prestigious Local Government Awards 2024.
