Wandsworth Arts Fringe tickets on sale now!
Wandsworth Council’s Wandsworth Arts Fringe (WAF) launched its 2018 programme today with a rich array of shows and events to suit all ages, interests and tastes.
During its nine-year history, South London’s premiere arts festival has gone from strength to strength. This year is the biggest yet with the festival playing host to over 180 shows in over 55 venues across the borough from May 4 to 20. With an eclectic range of arts and culture, every conceivable space both indoor and outdoor will buzz with activity and creative endeavour.
There will be pop-up dance performances and taster sessions at the Royal Academy of Dance in Battersea, and an outdoor, interactive art workshop as part of WildCity’s Big Art Picnic in Tooting and Nine Elms. The Waste Paper Opera Company will bring odd-bod opera to Balham, and performance partnership Fragility will takeover The Arches at St Mary’s Church in Putney and The Cat’s Back in Wandsworth Town with an abundance of cutting-edge theatre and side-splitting comedy. Including life drawing (with a difference) in Roehampton, an Affordable Art Exhibition in Furzedown, and an entire programme of spectacular circus events in the brand new Battersea Circus Garden, WAF will bring every corner of the borough to life once again this May.
Councillor Leslie McDonnell, Mayor of Wandsworth said:
“We are delighted that Wandsworth Arts Fringe is back for its 9th year. With events and activities taking place across the borough, WAF reflects the vibrancy of the borough and helps create and cement a sense of community in the area. Wandsworth Council is proud to support WAF”.
WAF Producer Cath Mattos says:
“WAF 2018 is set to be our biggest and most inclusive festival yet! We have new pop up and touring venues coming to town for the festival and over 180 events will make all corners of Wandsworth in May so exciting and vibrant. We encourage you to explore our shows and events and take a risk on something new.”
