Returning for its eight year, and running from 5th – 14th April 2019, we’re on the lookout for a diverse range of performers, shows and genres, for family, teen and adult audiences.
We’re open to all performing and visual arts – from one-person shows to casts of thousands (ish:), bringing original shows or the classics, and bands who can play at our indoor music festival. We love it all – the weird and wonderful, macabre and magical, serious or silly, funny or farcical, joyful and fantastical, thought-provoking and emotional.
We’re one of the earlier Fringes, so aim to be a space for emerging artists, or for established artists to present and develop new work or work in progress. We’re an open access festival, so don’t charge performers to enter and pass on 85% of the profits to them. We do all the organising, including booking venues, technicians and front of house staff. We also programme shows as double bills, so performers have moral support from the show they’re paired with and get double the audience.
As well as presenting shows, gigs and films, we’ll also be running workshops, aimed mainly at families, during the day in the Easter school holiday.
So if you’ve got an idea for a show or a workshop, or you already have one ready, you can apply here: https://www.swindonfringefestival.com/swinge-application-fo…
The application closing date is 4th November 2018. If you have any questions, check the FAQs on our website or get in touch via our website or Facebook.
Thanks, from the Swindon Fringe Team
