The 2022 Wanstead Fringe

The Wanstead Fringe Association is deeply saddened by the death of Her Majesty the Queen. 

We have been reviewing events scheduled to take place during the period of national mourning, and have been considering guidance from the Cabinet Office.

We expect most Wanstead Fringe events to take place as scheduled, though they will do so respectfully. Ticket-holders for any events which are affected will be informed by email of any changes. Please follow our social media channels for updates.

The Wanstead Fringe returns – from 9 to 25 September – with our biggest ever mix of cultural events and more than ever to choose from.

This year will see THREE plays during Fringe fortnight.

It also includes the launch of the first Wanstead Book Festival, with national and local authors coming to speak about their work.

There’s comedy, Kinema, tours, talks, masterclasses – and the mighty Wanstead Fringe Jumble Trail (you can see the map of stalls here).

Sign up for events below, and buy tickets. Keep in touch with Fringe news on Wansteadium, and get email updates here.
