Our 2023 bursaries are spread across two waves in line with the two registration periods. Bursaries are now closed for Brighton Fringe 2023, excluding The Brighton Lions Bursary which will remain open until 7 February 2023.

The Brighton Lions Bursary

Brighton Lions are generously supporting Brighton Fringe participants aged 60 and over by offering 5 bursaries of 5 free registrations. Bursaries will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis and each applicant can only apply once. If you have already completed and paid for a registration, you can still apply, if you qualify for a bursary your registration fee will be refunded.

The Offer: Five winning events will have their Brighton Fringe 2023 registration fee paid for by Brighton Lions.

Criteria: Applicants must be residents of Brighton and Hove and be aged 60 and over. Applicants must have either already completed their Brighton Fringe 2023 registration or have started to complete it. 

Deadline: 5pm Tuesday 7 February – if all bursaries are allocated before the deadline then we will close applications before this time. Winners will be notified by Tuesday 14 February at the latest.

Apply here.
