The Fringe Society want to do everything we can to support Fringe artists and partners during this time.

In place of our usual Fringe activities, this August we launched a number of projects intended to provide support for Fringe participants and keep the spirit of the Fringe going until we meet again in 2021. Find out more about how the reimagined 2020 Fringe.


Fringe Society show registration and box office services had to be suspended due to the Covid-19 situation. In response to this, we created a listings platform where Fringe participants could signpost to their August activities.

From the end of September 2020, listings will no longer be available.


In the absence of a physical festival, we're launching Fringe Marketplace, a dedicated digital showcase platform to connect international arts industry delegates with tour-ready artists who were programmed as part of this year’s Fringe.

Fringe Marketplace aims to create vital opportunities for an industry crippled by Covid-19 by connecting industry and artists while creating opportunities for peer review and future commissioning.
