Brighton Fringe sets out to stimulate, educate and entertain all year round through a diverse range of events, performances and workshops.

During May and part of June, Brighton Fringe welcomes local, national and international performers and audiences as it showcases creativity in Brighton, Hove and beyond. 

This vast celebration of the weird, wild and wonderful has grown out of and is inspired by, home-grown talent. More than 30% of events are put on by artistic companies based in Brighton & Hove.

We are committed to helping the arts flourish. Brighton Fringe is completely open-access, which means anyone can register and put on a Brighton Fringe event as no selection criteria is imposed on artists. This enables both new and established performers to take risks and entertain audiences. We also help artists develop professionally through a range of year-round workshops, mentoring and bursary programmes.

We also work closely with festivals worldwide and international networks such as the World Festival Network and World Fringe Alliance to further support performers in touring, fundraising and developing.

We receive no regular public funding; we rely on grants and private donations to continue hosting the festival every year. You can donate to Brighton Fringe here.


 It is an open-access festival meaning that anyone can pay our registration fee, find a venue and put on an event as part of Brighton Fringe.

The organisation helps artists and performers take part. The yearly Fringe Academy is programmed which features many different workshops that enable people to learn new techniques and tips from professionals, including marketing, grant funding and producing. Brighton Fringe also works alongside many local charitable organisations, increasing the audience reach and making the festival more inclusive an accessible for all.
