a broad overview

a little more detail

why apply to Fringe TheatreFest?

Fringe TheatreFest provides an affordable context in which to develop new work, to give further life to existing productions and to introduce a company to North Devon audiences , to local and regional promoters and, where appropriate, to schools and colleges. But primarily Fringe Theatrefest is a meeting place to forge new relationships and somewhere to be inspired by a host of interesting productions as well as to inspire others with what you have to offer.

Fringe Theatrefest is probably one of the lowest-cost Fringe Theatre Festivals in the world because the outlay is so low. But, whilst it won't break the bank, it won't make anyone's fortune. In 2018 the average box-office take for a three-performance run in a regular venue was £232. The highest earner grossed £715. The lowest earner grossed £65. Alt Space takings varied enormously as some acts didn't set out to make money. The top earning street act made £477.

Fringe TheatreFest 2019 will have room for 47 companies in Regular Venues and for a further 32 Alt Space companies.
