Now in its seventh year, Fringe TheatreFest is a lively, friendly celebration of theatre in its many and varied forms.
In 4 days you can see 32 companies presenting a grand total of 103 performances.
You'll find a wide array of theatre work from dramatic writing to site-specific events, from savage comedy to community dance. There are productions for family audiences, simple story-telling pieces, performance-poetry,spoken-word, solo shows and large-cast extravaganzas. In short, a programme to refresh those parts that only live performance can reach. Full details at programme.
It all happens in Barnstaple, centred around the Queen's Theatre in Boutport Street.
The Queen's Theatre itself houses 3 venues - studio@QT, gallery@QT and Room At The Top. The Queen's Theatre will be hosting a total of 16 productions. The central box-office is also located here where you can pre-book tickets for any venue. Drinks and snacks are available here throughout the day, with the bar staying open until well after the last show has finished.
Around the corner from the Queen's Theatre, in Paternoster Row, is St Anne's Arts & Community Centre. This has its own on-the-day box-office for the 7 shows that are scheduled here. Paternoster Row itself is the site of an extended site-specific show that lasts for between 6 and 8 hours on all 4 Fringe TheatreFest days.
At the top of Boutport Street, about 4 minutes walk from the Queen's Theatre, is The Baptist Hall. Again, this venue has its own on-the-day box-office for the 7 productions scheduled here.
