It's important that all venues and events planning on taking part in the 2020 Autumn festival have read all goverment guidelines on working safely during COVID-19.
Both venues and events will need to provide COVID-19 risk assessments before taking part in the Autumn Season.
For more guidance on COVID-19 Health and Safety and Risk Assessments please see our guide here.
The goverments guidelines for Working Safely During the Coronavirus Pandemic: The Performing Arts can be found here.
Risk Assessments can be uploaded in Eventotron. PLEASE NOTE: Brighton Fringe Ltd will require an up-to-date risk assessment for each venue and event as part of the registration process. This will now be a condition of registration and we will NOT advertise or sell tickets for events until this has been completed and uploaded in Eventotron.
You are legally required to make all props, sets and scenery fully fire-resistant, which can be done using a spray guard. Book an inspection with a fire officer before the festival starts.
