The list of venues hosting shows as part of The Greater Manchester Fringe can be found on the Venues page of this website.
New venues may be added to this prior to the closing date so it's a good idea to keep checking this.
Have a look at each of the venues details and see which space will be the most suitable for your show. It is important that you are aware of the size of the space, the equipment that they provide and that the venue will be able to accommodate the style of your show. Don't just apply to every venue, they wont all be suitable for you.
If you cannot find a space which you feel suits the needs of your show then you are welcome to find your own space. Alternatively you can contact us and we will try to help you find a venue that is right for you.
If you have a venue in Greater Manchester which you wish to host comedy events with then please contact us on email@example.com.
All spaces in the festival will vary a lot and will provide different levels of equipment, therefore it is important that you check with the venue manager exactly what will and what wont be provided.
In most cases acts will need to bring their own technician as often one isn't provided. Some venues will also expect you to sell your tickets on the door or provide your own front of house person. You will need to check this with the venue manager.
Most venues will have many shows taking place in one day and often equipment will be shared with other acts performing in the same space, meaning that the space might need to be cleared at the end of each show. A lot of spaces won't be able to accommodate shows with complex technical requirements. Again, make sure you check with the venue manager if you have any queries on this.
We have always left it down to the performer to decide what ticket price to charge however we will give you guidance if necessary.
If you have any queries about the deal a particular venue is offering you, just ask us. It's better to be completely clear on everything before you make an agreement.
