It was so incredible to see our audiences back on site enjoying the show after two years of in-house performances. And we couldn’t do it without the creative genius of all of you fabulous makers, doers, builders, sewers and dreamers who give so much time, energy and love to the event.
We hope you will join us again next year - same time, same place, new vision! Plans are already afoot for WAVE 2023. Keep an eye out for the launch of the costume competition in autumn.
Congratulations to the winners listed below (and to everyone who got a garment across the finish line and onto the catwalk!).
Don't miss our show gallery on the WAVE website and stand by for the Horizons video and announcement of next year's show early next year.
