WAF in Your Living Room8-24 May 2020
WAF is an open-access fringe festival that shakes up South West London every year in May with an eclectic programme of performing and visual arts. In 2020, it took the form of a digital festival as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The WAF team and its artists had just four weeks to radically transform this year’s planned WAF 2020 into WAF in Your Living Room, an online festival that would entertain, inspire and comfort audiences stuck at home during the lockdown.
