The Leytonstone Festival dates from the 1990s. Today, the Festival is run by the Leytonstone Festival Association, registered charity no. 1127801, which elects its trustees and officers annually. The Association's overall objective is to present a programme which is as balanced as possible, and where possible promotes local talent; and much of its work is therefore necessarily concerned with raising and managing the necessary funds to achieve this end. Finally, please note that none of those involved in the Association receive remuneration of any kind, and all are volunteers.
