We are pleased to unveil that we took part at the event as the Fringes festivals Media Partner, so we will cover the stunning line-up encompassing over 675 events housed in 191 venues across the city, announced yesterday by the incoming director Julian Caddy.
His aims include taking Brighton Fringe further into the international arena with more companies from outside the Uk, this year the festival welcomes around 30 foreign companies and, with i on board as national media partner, it is expected that this number will increase in years to come.
