Fringe City is a free outdoor event held in Brighton each weekend during May, attracting approx. 103,000 people in 2018. You will be given the opportunity to apply to perform on one of our Fringe City stages. If you express a wish to perform at Fringe City please make sure that an excerpt of your show is suitable to be performed outdoors.
Please note that performance time is limited and we cannot guarantee you a performance slot. If you are not allocated a time slot on any of the Fringe City stages we encourage that you come on down anyway, you can still flyer, dress up and interact with audiences to promote your event!
Fringe City takes place on New Road, which is in central Brighton.
