Venue Directory


The Venue Directory is an online, year-round resource for acts looking for performance and exhibition space. It is free to be included and we like to encourage all venues to become registered. Take a look at venues currently in our directory here


If you’d like to register your venue to be part of our Venue Directory please complete this form and return to participantservices [at] with an image of your venue.


During the registration period (October – January), Brighton Fringe receives a high number of enquiries from artists who are looking for performance space to use during the festival. As a service to venues, we match the artists’ requirements with a suitable venue. For this reason, it is important that your venue page on the Venue Directory is kept up to date. If any information about your venue has changed, please contact participantservices [at]
