9 Reasons to Buy a Fringe Friends Membership

Check out our amazing Friends Partners

As a Bronze, Silver or Gold Fringe Friend, you’ll have access to a world of discounts in some of Brighton’s best restaurants, bars, businesses and cafes. Here’s a quick taste of what you can expect.


The Walrus

This is the ideal venue for those looking to break up the culture binge with a grand affair at an affordable price. Heaving with nooks and crannies, there’s a room and a menu for any taste. Nestle yourself in a booth or bask in the English sunshine on the two-tier roof garden. Tuck into a hearty pub lunch or nibble on a selection of salads. Gluten-free options available.

Offer: 2-for-1 on mains at The Walrus, Monday to Thursday from 5pm

Krater Comedy Club

Where best to see stand-up than Brighton’s top comedy venue? The atmosphere is electric, the food is freshly-prepared and so are the jokes if you’re lucky. Expect to see a marvellous mishmash of UK and international comedy geniuses in an intimate basement setting. You might even get to see a few faces from TV. Feeling daring? Spicy chicken wings and a front row seat should do the trick.

20% off show only tickets and meal deal tickets at Krater Comedy Club Sunday 8pm


If there were an award for vibrant lunches, Foodilic would win forks down.The two locations on Western Road and North Street offer the perfect energy fix to stop you dozing through the afternoon. Both offer a combination of flavour and nutrition, improved only by the option to go back for seconds (take a trip to North Street for the buffet). Meat, vegetarian and vegan dishes are all available. Prepare to look at salad a whole lot differently.

About Balance

Maybe it’s an ache in your feet from running between shows, the beer belly bloat from too many comedies, or maybe it’s just about time you started treating yourself. Whatever the reason – or convenient excuse – a Karma card is the logical next step. Embrace the therapeutic options available, like yoga or massage, in the very heart of Brighton. And don’t forget to flash your card in The Spice Shop, Bluebird Tea Company, Eat Naked and other local businesses to sooth your wallet and your soul. Enter promo code fringe17 to get a three-month Karma Card for £15 instead of £30.

A does-what-it-says-on-the-tin kind of establishment. MEATliquor takes a selection of meat and dunks it in batter, buns and its infamous Hippie Sauce, before serving it to you with a side of filth. Expect mouthwatering burgers, hotdogs and wings served on a canteen tray. Cocktails are a must, but beware the Game Over if you want to make it through the afternoon. Think loud decor, neon and graffiti and you’re halfway there. Vegan and vegetarian options available.

20% off Sunday to Friday, excluding 7pm onwards on Friday


Brunch, coffees, cocktails and cake. An excellent tonic for delirious Brighton Fringe-goers nursing a hangover. For sober-minded individuals, Kooks is the perfect stopover for a quick sugar fix. It’s centrally located, offers outside seating and oozes laid-back vibes without the pretension. Essentially, an establishment for kooks who love cake.

10% off Monday to Friday


Proud Cabaret

Kemptown life is a cabaret old chum said Liza Minnelli, or something to that effect. Tucked in the depths of Brighton’s LGBTQ community lies a naughty unkept secret. Proud Cabaret describes itself as 'exclusivity and intimacy in a self-contained space'. Customers dine at large round tables and speakeasy-style booths in the large main room bathed in pink. Think lavish decor, exquisite costumes and one hell of a show.

Dining at Bill’s feels a bit like dining in a farmer’s warehouse or a rather large food cupboard. Situated in an old bus depot, there's rustic vibes aplenty, with huge rows of jars lining the high walls. Bill’s is undoubtedly a brunch champion but the lunch and dinner menus are just as tempting. And the displayed food is available to purchase if you want to take the experience home with you. Gluten-free menus are available.

20% off Monday to Friday. Not available in conjunction with set menu or any other offer.

The Curry Leaf Cafe

Gold winner of Best International Cuisine and Best Family Dining in the Brighton & Hove Food Awards 2017. Vibrant food in a vibrant setting is what Curry Leaf Cafe does best. The first cafe opened in The Lanes and now the orange a green facade has become iconic in the Brighton curry scene. With another cafe in Kemptown and a street food kiosk at the station, there’s plenty of opportunity to grab yourself some authentic Indian cuisine.

10% off Monday to Friday until 7pm. Not available in conjunction with any other offer.
