Fringe Academy

Fringe Academy aims to create an opportunity for individuals looking to expand their knowledge of the arts, but most importantly break down barriers that prevent those from low-income backgrounds or underrepresented groups from accessing the arts, by providing skills-based training, advice and support.

We run FREE workshops throughout the year which are open to all to attend, as the workshops are added they will be announced on this page and in participant emails, so keep checking back! If you have any queries, email [email protected] or call 01273 764 907.
