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


The draw has been made

The draw was made on Saturday 31st January. You can see the results of the draw here.

Over the next week or so, the programme will firm up. We will be looking to see whether there is leeway in the programme that allows us to offer some of the companies at the top of the waiting list a slot. And the programme might continue to change right up until the opening of Fringe TheatreFest due to sudden unavailbility. Keep watching this space!

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.

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 programme are still up on the website if you wish to get a feel for what Fringe TheatreFest is.


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.
