Wandsworth Arts Fringe

The treasure trove of creativity that is Wandsworth Arts Fringe (WAF) bursts into Wandsworth for two weeks in May.

Friday 4 to Sunday 20 May 2018

Every year, WAF shakes up South West London with an eclectic programme of arts and culture that thrills, moves and inspires audiences from across the city.

WAF is an open access arts festival, brought to you by Wandsworth Council, supporting the arts and culture industries across the borough. The festival is funded by Wandsworth Council and last year received generous contributions from Arts Council England, Greenland and Southside Shopping Centre. Organised by Enable Leisure and Culture.

WAF brings together over 180 creatives in an array of nooks and crannies throughout the borough –  some indoor, some outdoor, and some truly unexpected – revealing a Wandsworth you never knew existed.

The festival is emphatically inclusive and welcomes participation from artists across all art forms – including  street performances, exhibitions, comedy, theatre, music, dance and everything in between.  This is your opportunity to try something new, take creative risks, test new ideas and reach new audiences.

WAF also offers development support such as professional and peer advice, networking events and marketing toolkits to actively support its participants to realise their ideas to excellent standards.
