Barnstaple's Fringe Theatre Festival
June 25th-28th 2015


what's it all about?

2015 will be the ninth year of Fringe TheatreFest - a celebration of theatre in all its varied forms. The 2015 dates are Thursday June 25th - Sunday June 28th.

We are accepting proposals for site-specific productions from Monday 6th October until Friday 31st October with the draw to be made on Saturday 8th November. We will be accepting entries for productions in regular TheatreFest venues from Thursday 1st January 2015 until Friday 23rd January with the draw to be made on Saturday 24th January. In both cases applications are made on-line. Please go to performers info for details.

In 2014 33 companies presented a total of 105 performances. Everything from a pocket musical on a pre-West End tour to a tailor-made adventure for young people in and around The Library. There was serious drama, outrageous comedy, biting satire, celebratory dance. And there were shows to appeal right across the age-range. Details of the 2014 are still up on the website, starting with the programme.


where does it happen?

It all happens in Barnstaple, centred around the Queen's Theatre in Boutport Street.

The Queen's Theatre houses 3 venues - studio@QT, gallery@QT, Room At The Top - and the central box-office.

Around the corner, in Paternoster Row, is St Anne's Arts & Community Centre and at the top of Boutport Street, about 4 minutes walk from the Queen's Theatre, is The Baptist Hall.

We also encourage companies to find their own venues for site-specific projects. In 2014 productions took place in Barnstaple Library and Barnstaple Museum.
