Brighton Fringe 2023 is taking place from May 5 to June 4, with more than 500 events happening in more than 100 venues in Brighton and beyond.
With events varying from comedy, to theatre, to cabaret and more, you wouldn’t want to miss out on getting tickets before they run out. Better yet, Brighton Fringe has a ticket type to suit every occasion and suit anyone’s situation.
Here’s a rundown of what you can expect to find and what events are offering those ticketing options.
PAY WHAT YOU WANT TICKETS (PWYW)
Pay-what-you-want tickets allow you to decide how much you can afford to spend on an event, starting from a minimum directly set by the performer and up to £30. Just pull the slider on the screen and name your price.
Here are some of the events offering this type of ticketing option:
A surreal cabaret chat show hosted by the immiscible ‘Wrong Numba’ who will be existentially exploring our current affairs and how to handle them.
Expect music and dancing until the world ends (or closing times).
Award-winning comedian Raul Kohli talks about what it means to be English in his brand-new stand-up hour.
With anecdotes from his attempts to ingratiate himself with English culture (namely through football, alcohol and drug abuse) and analysis of the current cultural and political landscape.
PERSONAL ASSISTANT TICKETS
Personal assistants and carers are entitled to free tickets when attending an event with someone they care for. To set up a personal assistant ticket all you will need to do is email [email protected].
Here are a couple of recommendations for events offering this ticket type:
Project Female Dance Company, a youth-led organisation, put together this performance to honour and acknowledge the impact female protests around the world had on society.
A performance accompanied by a fusion of hip-hop/contemporary fusion and commercial dance genres.
An interactive and magical family circus for little ones and older peers who are still children at heart.
Join a skilled cast as they perform aerial, dancing, hula-hoop and more spectacular activities.
A fun family show where anything can happen – not too close and personal. And meet the cast for photos after the show.
This is a 4-ticket deal purchased together at a special discounted rate. They are available unless otherwise stated, to 2 adults and 2 children or 1 adult and 3 children.
Here are some of the shows offering this ticketing option:
‘Let’s All Dance Company’ is returning to Brighton with this beautiful, classic ballet to charm audiences of all ages. Suitable in particular for 2-9 years old and SEND children.
An original score and crystal-clear storytelling are ready to draw you into the magical world of ballet, making it accessible to all. This is a lovely production and a heart-warming tale with the theme of friendship at its core.
Perfect for a family outing on a wonderful spring day.
A cabaret show perfectly suitable for all families starring 'Silly Sonja' (aka CheekyKita) with some special guests from the world of comedy, magic, music, puppetry, and circus... anything can happen!
This a great way to use a specific family ticket for you and your children.
