In April 2008 Brighton and Hove City Council introduced a flyering ban, preventing the distribution of free printed materials. This has meant that if you would like to flyer in Brighton & Hove, you must obtain a personal license. Brighton Fringe have coordinated free flyering passes for Brighton Fringe Participants with Brighton & Hove Council, enabling flyering throughout the festival in any areas of Brighton & Hove from 10am – 10pm, 7 days a week. This permit begins on 20 April 2018 and ends on the last day of the festival, 3 June 2018.
All you need to do is include the Brighton Fringe logo on your flyers, this will act as your pass.

Fly-posting is putting up posters or stickers on properties or street items without consent from the owner. Examples of fly-posting would be:
- sticking posters onto boarded up shops advertising a gig
- attaching a poster or flyer to a lamppost
- putting stickers onto road signs showing political statements
Please note that fly-posting is illegal and any costs incurred by Brighton Fringe due to flyposting will be charged to the promoter.
