about Brighton Fringe Festival @ Artista: What's On
Brighton Fringe Festival runs from the 3rd of May to the 2nd of June 2019. Once again we have a full programme of Fringe shows for you at The Secret Comedy Club: Fringe Comedy Hub.
From taster preview nights where you can see 10 to 15 min previews of Brighton Fringe shows to full 1 hour performances of comedy, music and theater, we have something for everyone at Artista this May for the Festival!
Brighton Fringe is the largest arts festival in England and one of the largest fringe festivals in the world and what makes it exceptional is that it is set in an iconic city with unique cultural heritage. It sets out to stimulate, educate and entertain a wide audience by providing a showcase for diverse art forms.
It takes place for 4 weeks every May taking in two bank holidays and the summer half-term week. Brighton Fringe has grown out of and is inspired by home-grown creativity: more than 50% of events are put on by artistic companies based in Brighton & Hove. In 2016, it had 932 individual events, more than 200 free events, 4,256 performances at 170 venues.
It is also a completely open access festival, which means anyone can put on an event and be included in the brochure and website listings on payment of a fee. By definition, Brighton Fringe can include any art form. No artistic judgement or selection criteria are imposed on participants, enabling the development of both new and established work to attract fresh audiences, press and promoters.
