About The Greater Manchester Fringe

The Greater Manchester Fringe 2022 - Getting things going again.

The Greater Manchester Fringe first took place in 2012 with 6 different venues and a handful of shows in each. Since then then Greater Manchester Fringe grew each year with more performances, more ticket sales and more venues taking part.

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 Manchester.

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.
