Becoming a Patron of Waterloo Festival is an exciting and rewarding way to support something new. Our online Festival is inspiring new artistic ventures and new forms of community participation and it’s bringing people together in ways that will endure long after the present crisis is past.


Supporting it now means putting your name behind a new creative force for good and standing up for all that makes our part of London special. Mark, one of our patrons, said:

"Ground-breaking, stimulating, stylish, creative, fun and absorbing - the Waterloo Festival lets you soar above lock down!"
