A visit to the Brighton Fringe Festival in Brighton, England, is an experience like no other. Not only is it the largest arts festival of the U.K., but it is open access, so you can see many different displays of art and talent. There are a variety of venues that hold special events during the festival, such as parks, theatres, and concert halls.
Held at the same time as the main Brighton Festival, the Brighton Fringe Festival gives you more chances to see showcases for local artists, as well international performers. At the 2011 Brighton Fringe Festival, there were over 3000 performers, 625 events, and 135 free events. There are many different activities to participate in while at the festival, such as workshops, cabaret, art displays, comedy shows, and music events.
There are other opportunities to see spectacular showcases by attending Fringe City. Fringe City is a free event that is held outdoors, and is considered the central hub of the event. You never know what kind of performers that are performing that may leave a lasting memory. Or maybe you will see a group of people parading around in crazy costumes. Fringe City is definitely an exciting way to experience the festival.
You will feel like you are supporting a worthy cause, since the festival is a registered charity that supports venues, promoters, and artists. The best thing about the festival is that artists are free to put the performances and shows on wherever they choose to. In the past, some performers have put on shows in beach huts, the back of a truck, and even in a private home.
