Funding & Sponsorship

Funding

Producing and promoting a show can be an expensive venture. We appreciate that many of you receive little help toward your expenses, for this reason, we endeavour to keep your registration costs to a minimum and seek to advise you on how to save money and find the funding you require. 

There might be many cost implications when you take part in Brighton Fringe; accommodation, venue costs, registration fees, marketing costs and general living expenses to name but a few. You may need to use more than one method of fundraising outlined in this document - it is important that you don’t put all your eggs in one basket! 

You can start your funding search with the links listed below. Brighton Fringe offers a number of bursaries every year, in partnership with various organisations. You can view the current bursaries available here. We're also partnered with the crowd-funding platform Crowdfunder.co.uk, you can read more about crowd-funding here

Sponsorship

Brighton Fringe is not able to offer or arrange sponsorship for individual shows and events. However, it is worth thinking about contacting local businesses, if, for example, the company product fits with the theme of your event. It is worth approaching local and national companies, as some may offer sponsorship as part of their corporate social responsibility.

In-kind deals are worth exploring with companies. Perhaps you can arrange to put your sponsor’s logo on your event posters and flyers or give them a profile in a more creative way. Make sure that you know what their objective is and think about mutual benefits.
