what is Fringe TheatreFest?

Fringe TheatreFest is a low-cost opportunity to savour a whole variety of theatre. There are professional companies at the top of their game, community companies presenting ambitious work, aspiring professionals, schools, colleges, youth theatres and other groupings each with a burning desire to take part. All share a passion to communicate. The festival is not juried, curated or censored. So the programme doesn't conform to a single vision of how theatre should be made or what it should contain but instead presents a wide range of approaches.

Fringe TheatreFest '19 will feature seven ticketed venues plus a raft of shows in alternative spaces that charge on a pay-what-you-will basis.

There will be around 250 performances of over 70 different shows in just 4 days.

There’ll be comedy, tragedy, dance, spoken word, music, circus and puppetry in a multitude of combinations - something for everybody!
