We are holding a series of networking sessions at different venues around the borough in the lead up to the registration deadline and festival dates.
These are a great opportunity for you meet the WAF team and make new connections with other participants and venues so that you can share ideas, resources and publicity and get the most out of taking part.
In addition we offer online toolkits and guidance, and a 1-1 clinic session for more specific advice on realising your ideas and fundraising, including making an application to our grant scheme.
