Brighton Fringe Support to Venues

Brighton Fringe supports its venues and Venue Managers year round. We run monthly meetings to discuss involvement in the festival, agenda points are set by both Brighton Fringe and participating Venue Managers. If you want to come along to this meeting contact us.

Brighton Fringe provides practical advice and written resources for Venue Managers. These include the following:

- The complete guide to running a Brighton Fringe Venue
- Example schedule, this template can be downloaded and used by your venue
- Word copy of the Brighton Fringe registration form to send on to your companies (for use by Venue Managers who are registering shows and events)
- Brighton Fringe offers your full event listings information to other listings websites, upon request.
- Advice on running a box office. This is done through workshops, guides and over the telephone advice with Brighton Fringe’s Box Office Manager.
- Advice on relevant venue permissions, licences and fees including PRS, FEU and insurance.

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]
