ARTS INDUSTRY AT BRIGHTON FRINGE
Each year we invite a wide range of Arts Industry Professionals to attend Brighton Fringe, in the hope that they will help our participants further their careers and take their work to new audiences.
The Arts Industry Professionals who are invited include:
- UK and International Venues
- UK and International Festivals
- Tour Bookers
- Rural Touring Networks
- Freelance Producers and Directors
- Local Authority Arts Officers
In 2018 our visiting Arts Industry Professionals requested over 500 tickets to over 250 shows. This led to many events receiving further tour dates, including internationally.
We also run WINDOW, Brighton Fringe’s Arts Industry showcase created to develop and encourage artists ready for the next step in their career. It is a platform for high quality, ready to tour, new work to be highlighted during the first days of Brighton Fringe (3 – 9 May 2019).
