Lionel and Cindy: The Greatest Love Story

Returning Award-Winners 2022

We’re thrilled to announce that Brighton Fringe 2022 will see the return of award-winning shows from previous years. 

Each year, Brighton Fringe collaborates with partners across the arts industry to present awards to the events that have captured the imagination of Brighton Fringe including the Pebble Trust International Touring Bursary Outgoing, Brighton Gin Spirit of the Fringe and the Audience Choice awards. 

The Best of Miss Hope Springs ('s a very sort show)

Brighton Fringe 2021 Award Winner Miss Hope Springs recently celebrated a decade of decadence as resident songstress at London’s premier cabaret room Le Crazy Coqs in Piccadilly. And now, for those of you who couldn’t make it to town, she is bringing this glittering evening of laughter and song to the Brighton Fringe for 3 nights only.

Be prepared for your favourite sing-a-long musical numbers such as January Jones, Funny How Things Work Out, Mrs O’Toole, Carnival and of course her biggest hit... The Devil Made Me Do It. She will, as ever, dish up scandalous showbiz stories from her Ritz to the pits life in LA, Paris and... Dungeness.

24-26 May at The Rialto Theatre. Book Tickets.

Lionel & Cindy: The Greatest Love Story

Guava Palava are back with their award-winning comedy theatre characters Lionel & Cindy in The Greatest Love Story.

Simon David: White Gay

Belonging to the most toxic, self-destructive and frankly annoying demographic: the white gay, Simon David is back at Brighton Fringe with his award-winning hour of musical comedy. From racism to body image, porn addiction to gay Tories, Simon has a catchy song for just about every problem facing the community he loves to hate!

22 & 29 May at Komedia Studio. Book Tickets.

The Tragedy of Dorian Grey

The OffFest award-winning hit play of Brighton Fringe 2021 returns for 2022. Blue Devil Productions are back, virtually, with The Tragedy of Dorian Grey, in a stunning, black & white filmed version.

It’s 1965, the world has changed and London is swinging. In a studio in Chelsea, a young man is about to have his portrait painted. From there, Dorian’s story of fame, vanity, lust and corruption plays out against the changing music and fashions as the decades pass - a twisted odyssey of heartbreak, betrayal and a touch of bloody murder.

Experience The Tragedy of Dorian Grey on demand with this pre-recorded event. Book Now.

Clean!: The Musical 

Different Theatre’s award-winning musical, 'Clean!' is a rousing play about the women of laundry hill, Brighton. Winner of the Outstanding Theatre Award at Brighton Fringe 2021 and a host of five-star reviews, 'Clean!' is back for 2022 exploring themes of hardship, suffrage and sexuality. It celebrates women’s resilience and sisterhood across 150 years of history and has eerie parallels with today, including the #MeToo movement
