Waterloo Festival 2021: Respair


Every summer we run the annual Waterloo Festival. In 2021, the Festival will return for another edition between early May and the end of June. This year's theme is RESPAIR, an old English word meaning the return of hope after a period of despair. Read more about this here.

In 2020, we took the Festival online and by popular demand have kept its contents live – take a look at the other pages of this website! We’re always open to new collaborations, so if you have an idea you’d like to discuss, we’d love to hear from you. Contact
