‘The beauty of Brighton Fringe’s format is that it is completely open access, meaning anybody can take part, putting on whatever you want to do, wherever you want to do it.’ Julian Caddy, Brighton Fringe
Online registration is now open for next year’s Brighton Fringe. England’s largest arts festival, it will run for 4 weeks from 1 – 31 May. Registration is open until 30 January and anyone wanting to showcase their talent at any venue from their front room to a large theatre should sign up using the online registration form here. If you are well organised you can save up to £30 by taking advantage of the Early Bird discount on registration fees by registering before 15 December.
To help with the cost of putting on a fringe show, Brighton Fringe has secured four funding schemes (with more to be confirmed) to support participants. Legal & General are also running a revamped bursary scheme, with 12 bursaries on offer to local Brighton Fringe participants over the age of 60. This is the first year of running this new scheme with the aim to engage older people with the arts.
