Applications for Regular Venue slots at Fringe TheatreFest 2024 are now closed. Applications for Alternative Spaces slots remain open until Friday 22nd March though there is now a waiting-list.

The Hat-Draw took place at the Queen's Theatre, Barnstaple on Saturday 27 January.

Each year the Hat-Draw determines which companies are offered a Regular Venue slot and also establishes a waiting-list in case slots become available at a later date.

Here are the confirmed invitations and waiting-lists.

Fringe TheatreFest inspires with an exciting range of performances at exceptional prices - £4 to £8 in ticketed venues, pay-what-you-will bucket-collections in outside and less formal spaces.

There are wonderful local companies on show plus performers from around the country and across the globe drawn by our reputation as perhaps the friendliest Fringe in the UK.
