Brighton Fringe 2023 is taking place from May 5 to June 4 with more than 500 events taking place in more than 100 venues across Brighton and beyond. 

Brighton Fringe has a ticket type for every occasion and is catered to anyone’s situation.

Among these ticket types, we have the Pay What You Want Option (PWYW). These tickets allow you to decide how much you can afford to spend on an event, starting from a minimum set by the artist and going up to £30. All you have to do is pull the slider on the screen and name your price.

Here is a list of the events offering this ticketing option.
