Brighton Fringe 2015 now open for registration plus new membership scheme
Event registration now open for Brighton Fringe 2015!
Brighton Fringe opened for registrations on the 20th October marking the start of a new year for Brighton Fringe. Everyone is encouraged to take part in England’s largest arts festival, which runs for 4 weeks from 1 – 31 May 2015; incorporating May half-term and both bank holidays.
Online event registration is open from noon on 20 October until 30 January and anyone wanting to showcase their talent at any venue from their front room to a large theatre is welcome to sign up using the online registration form here: registration.brightonfringe.org
Brighton Fringe are always looking for ways to make taking part affordable for participants, and this year is no different. Those that are well organised 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, including the returning Pebble Trust Brighton Fringe Awards, match funding from crowdfunding partners Zequs and IdeasTap bursaries. 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.
The popular Family Guide will also be returning, expected to feature over 150 events just for families as their number continues to increase with the festival including the half term week.
The ever-popular Brighton Fringe brochure will hit the streets in early March, with the programme launching online at the end of February.
