The Greater Manchester Fringe 2019 is set to be our biggest yet!
The Greater Manchester Fringe first took place in 2012 with 6 different venues and a handful of shows in each.
In 2019, our 8th year will be bigger and better than ever.
We are a multi-venue open access arts festival providing support for
all art forms to show their work, creating an arts community, encouraging first
time participation in arts production and performances across Greater
Ticket prices are low, sometimes FREE providing greater access to a non-traditional theatre-going audience.
Many past productions have moved onto established theatres, such as Bolton Octagon, Lowry Theatre, Royal Exchange theatre, HOME theatre, national tours and have been recognised at the Manchester Theatre Awards.
With a dull and dominant mainstream, a fringe should always be encouraged. A city that has been the birthplace of some of the greatest alternative poets, bands, comedians and painters should be encouraging the odd and the different to create, and it is with the Manchester Fringe, brilliantly so. Some of my favourite spaces to play have been the corners and attics found for the Manchester Fringe.
"There's something for everyone.... The only difficulty will be choosing which one to go to."
The Good Review
"One thing is for sure, there's something for everyone next month in Manchester. Time to get off the sofa, and into the Fringe."
The Fiction Stroker
"...showcasing the best of talent from the North West."
