WAF is back from 7 – 23 June 2024, and we want you to help us make #WAF2024 spectacular.

Since 2009, WAF has brought together hundreds of creatives in a boundary-pushing annual line-up, taking place in every nook and cranny of Wandsworth borough.

We pride ourselves on being a testing ground for bold, experimental work, and we’re looking for professional and emerging artists who want to present their work to new audiences. Plus, Wandsworth’s going for London Borough of Culture 2025 so we really want to programme a diverse range of cultural activity which showcases the fantastic creativity in our borough. If you’re involved in theatre, comedy, visual art, dance, carnival, poetry, music, circus, or anything in between, we want to hear from you!

Wandsworth Arts Fringe is a proudly inclusive, open-access festival.

Express your interest online by 5pm on Thu 14 Dec 2023, or find out more about taking part here.

Filling out an Expression of interest form is a non-committal way of telling us your plans and letting us know if you need any help or advice. You don’t need to have a clear idea of what you’d like to do, and we won’t hold it against you if your project does not come to fruition for any reason!

Need support? WAF offers up to £2,000 per project annually via WAF Grants, to help you make your WAF project happen, plus the Wandsworth Grant Fund supports arts and culture projects in the borough with awards of up to £10,000. WAF also offers 50% off registration fees for artists under 26 or for artist collectives with over half of their members aged under 26.
