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, any time of day, 7 days a week. This permit has now begun, so you can start flyering now until 2 June!
All you need to do is include the Brighton Fringe logo on your flyers, this will act as your pass. And of course, you must have a registered Brighton Fringe 2019 event to be eligible.
Please note: the Brighton Fringe 2015 paint-stroke logo is no longer in use and will not be accepted as a 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.
