Wandsworth Arts Fringe bursts into life for 17 brilliant days each June, shaking up South West London with an eclectic programme of arts & culture that thrills, moves and inspires audiences from across the city.
WAF is an open access arts festival. There is no selection process so everyone can jump on board!
Since 2010, WAF has brought together hundreds of creatives in a bold and boundary pushing annual line-up of cutting-edge theatre and comedy, exquisite music concerts, art exhibitions, experimental performance art, outdoor art extravaganzas, and everything in between, taking place across the borough.
WAF is emphatically inclusive and welcomes participation from artists across all art forms. We offer development support such as professional and peer advice, networking events and marketing toolkits to actively support participants to realise their ideas to excellent standards.
WAF is dedicated to providing meaningful support to creative talent, from established arts organisations to school children, we provide a democratic platform and support network for everyone that wants to take part.
Originally introduced in 2018 as a provision for housebound audiences, WAF In Your Living Room is WAF's digital programme strand, which aims to make work accessible to as many art-lovers as possible.
Wandsworth Arts Fringe is brought to you by Wandsworth Council, supporting the arts and culture industries across the borough. The festival is funded by Wandsworth Council and has received generous contributions from Arts Council England.
