History

The WSAF stand in 2015
WSAF 2014 Help Desk

Although we are a completely new team, Warwick Student Arts Festival is not a completely new concept to Warwick - it used to be yearly event from 2004 to 2015. We've done a bit of research into the lore and history of WSAF, which can be found here.

WSAF's History

FAQ

What's going on?

Throughout Saturday, Sunday and Monday, we'll be hosting over 60 free events across Warwick University. You can find our full schedule and event list here.

Why are you putting on this event?

The University of Warwick has a wealth of highly motivated student bands, theatre societies and other performing groups which we want to present to whole University community in the summer term. This is inspired by the old 'Warwick Student Arts Festival', which to our knowledge last took place in 2015.

How is WSAF different to other events such as SocFest, MTW StageFest and Freshblood Festival?

WSAF's aim is to widen performance opportunities and to give people the chance to watch something that they might not have seen otherwise. We're providing a wider range of arts than society-specific events such as StageFest and Freshblood, and are more performance and arts-related than SocsFest. You're more than welcome to submit and exhibit the same performance at both WSAF and another event.

Where will everything take place?

WSAF will take place all over the University of Warwick campus, however we will primarily be located around the Piazza and FAB. You can view all our venues here.

I'd like to help out but don't want or have anything to perform. Is this possible?

Of course! We'll likely need a lot of help in advance with organisation and marketing, and on the day with operations and logistics. Please reach out to us at [email protected].

I've found references to an older Warwick Student Arts Festival or Warwick Fringe before. Is this related?

Yes! To the best of our knowledge, the Warwick Student Arts Festival used to be a yearly event, however this last ran in 2015. We're looking at reviving this again in 2024, with a completely new team. You can find more about our history here.
