And So It Begins…

Well, it's finally June 19 – long pencilled into our diaries as the start of WSAF 05. The piazza stage arrived yesterday and the tech team put it up very quickly (and got nice sun tans) and we've moved our HQ into the former Student Shop, which will serve as an enquiry point and display space for ArtSoc and PhotoSoc work. We've even got lanyards with WSAF passes on them (wow!)...

So the the stage is (literally) set for WSAF 05 to begin this afternoon at 4pm when 'The Greatest Show on Campus' - an hour and a half of magic, juggling and music - kicks off, followed by the the ever popular Revelation Rock-Gospel Choir's annual summer concert.

So slap on some suncream (but also pack an umbrella) and head onto campus for WSAF 05 - bigger, better and sexier than ever before….

Decorate, draw, paint, stick, sew, cut, print, stamp, stencil – whatever you want! The all new WSAF postcards are now out and about – grab one and get arty! All you need to do is find one of our many blank postcards (try union north or the arts centre), and get creative. The best one wins £300 of Travel Vouchers courtesy of STA Travel! When you're done post them in our purple postcard box in Union North (reception area), we will then showcase as many as we can during festival week!

Is this the way….

Writing about web page

After a crazy weekend of filming and editing, "WSAF Amarillo", starring Simon Lucas, is finally finished and premiered at Top Banana last night!

Check it out on WTV's website at the link above.

Just a quick word of thanks to all the sabbaticals, crew and performers who took part this weekend, and especially to Peter and Chris for the amazing final product!

Check it out!

Two weeks to go….

Well, it's only 13 days until the Festival opens, and it seems this Blog has been somewhat neglected. However, despite exams and other such commitments, WSAF hasn't. The printed programme arrived back today, and should be around the Union and University very soon – so keep a look out! There are well over 50 different events – there's bound to be something that takes your fancy.

Plus, if you're not one of the hundreds of people involved in the organising of the Festival, working on the technical side or performing it's not too late to be involved – either come along to Union North on Sunday 19 June at 1pm to find out about helping during the week or read on for a chance of fame and (unlikely) fortune….

Ever fancied being in a music video? Well now's your chance. WTV are creating a 'WSAF Amarillo' trailer to be played on WTV and at Union events in the coming weeks. We're looking for happy and excited people to march along behind the likes of Simon Lucas and Kat Stark in our homage to Peter Kay. If you're interested leave a comment below (just so we can get an idea of numbers) and come along on Saturday 11 (wk 8) to Meeting Room 6 at 12 noon for a brief briefing and then an hour or two filming around the Union and Piazza. No dance experience required, just big elbowed marching!

And if that's not your thing, we'll see you at 4pm, Sunday 19 June for the opening of WSAF 2005!
