Social Media

Please send images and video of your show, rehearsals, workshops, set etc. to and we can post them on our WAF social media accounts.

  3. Create a Facebook Event and make Wandsworth Arts Fringe a co-host 
  4. Share your events to local Facebook groups and pages
  5.  Join the WAF Contributors Facebook Group


Twitter is a great place to let other businesses know what you're up to and share regular updates. Make sure to support your fellow WAF participants and retweet their events!

Instagram is a great place to post high quality pictures and videos to a wide audience.

  • Follow us on Instagram @wandsworthartsfringe
  • Tag us in your posts
  • Use our hashtag #WAF2024
  • Add your venue to the post as the location

There are 4 ways to share content on Instagram:

  • Posts - a Post on Instagram has to include an image/video. This can be a good place to share high quality photos of your event and poster. You can't include a functioning link in your Post text, but it is possible to include one link in your Instagram biography. Linktree is a useful way to make the most of the one biography link. Location can be used to connect your post to people nearby. 
  • Stories - a Story on Instagram is an image/video that lasts for 24 hours. This is a good place to share your messy behind the scenes photos, so that your audience can feel involved with your journey. It is possible to add a link to your story and so make sure to include the link to buy/book your event.
  • Reels - these are short videos (90 secs or less) and can quickly help you reach a new audience.
  • Live - this is for live video streaming and allows you to maintain a direct line with your audience.
