Brighton Fringe 2024 Award Winners by

To celebrate the final day of Brighton Fringe 2024, we crowned 15 brand new award-winners at a ceremony held in Fool’s Paradise on Sunday June 2nd. Sarah and Ben from the Brighton Fringe team hosted the event and were very grateful to Head First Acrobats and Matthew Gest’s Boogie Troop for their fantastic performances, and George Attwill from Lung and Half Full Theatre for the use of their confetti canons to really celebrate with a bang!
