Brighton Fringe is a completely open access festival, which means no artistic judgment or selection criteria are imposed on participants, enabling the development of both new and established work to attract fresh audiences, press and promoters.
Brighton Fringe has grown out of and is inspired by home-grown creativity: more than 30% of events are put on by artistic companies based in Brighton & Hove.
The programme is split up into 12 main event categories. These are: Cabaret & Circus, Comedy, Dance & Physical Theatre, Events & Film, Kids & Youth, Literature & Spoken Word, Music, Nightlife, Theatre, Tours, Visual Arts and Workshops.
