About The Tunbridge Wells Fringe Festival

Tunbridge Wells Fringe Festival is a series of events featuring local artists and groups offering a host of performances of all kinds across the arts performing in a whole range of venues in Tunbridge Wells for two weeks in July.

 

TW Fringe Festival events will feature local artists, acts and groups from a range of styles including music, opera, cabaret, comedy, dance, theatre, film and visual art. It will involve both up and coming, and established, performers of all ages and give all the opportunity to perform to live audiences across a variety of venues in Tunbridge Wells.

 

A whole range of venues from traditional theatres, pubs, hotels, restaurants and bars to more quirky settings, plus outdoor areas, can take part. They are able to coordinate directly with our huge range of performers and workshops, to create a unique schedule within each venue.

 

As organisers, we will promote the full programme through a multi-media marketing campaign giving visitors the opportunity to view the whole programme and easily find details on the acts, venues, dates, times and how to book. The organisers will also ensure that the festival offers a full balanced programme, embracing every art form and offers opportunities for a whole range of venues and performers. We will provide a number of Hubs were artists can showcase their acts and generate interest, as well as an opening ceremoney to highlight the variety of acts and businesses we have involved.

 

The idea is for everyone to benefit – local businesses will gain from increased business, visibility, and generating good will in the community and artists will enjoy performing again to live audiences and may also make some welcome income, alleviating some of the financial hardship that has accompanied freelance life over the past few years. Audiences will once again get to enjoy a complete range of performances under a festival vibe and rediscover local venues and performers. Last year’s response to the festival from the community was incredible, and we’re so excited to be able to put on an even bigger event this year.

  

TW Fringe Festival has received sponsorship from a variety of local businesses, which has enabled us to keep the event going. To find out more about our sponsors, click here. 

 

TW Fringe is a not-for-profit project. All profits are reinvested into the event itself. All of our organisers are volunteering their time, and the festival relies on as many volunteers as possible to run smoothly. To find out how to get involved, click here.
