Brighton Fringe 2018 finishes on Sunday 3rd June, but the charity behind England’s largest arts festival are already hard at work planning for 2019. A spectacular gala, “A Midsummer Night’s Fringe” is the latest hot ticket to help raise funds.
Brighton Fringe Ltd recently ran a successful Crowdfunding campaign, during which many artists were keen to offer their time in support, sparking the idea of a fundraising gala event. Brighton Open Air Theatre was chosen not only for its stunning setting but also due to its open access policy, which mirrors the ethos of Brighton Fringe. The first release of tickets were available through the Crowdfunding campaign; they are now available to all through the Brighton Fringe website.
A Midsummer Night’s Fringe is an excellent chance to experience the best Brighton Fringe has to offer, with local and international artists confirmed, and more to be announced after the Brighton Fringe 2018 awards.
Highlights include David Bramwell, Brighton’s Singing Barber, Peter Joannou, The Marta Scott Dance Company; King Sammy Silver and Louise Reay.
In addition to the performances, there will also be an online auction of prizes donated by local businesses which will finish during the gala, followed by a grand announcement of the total raised.
So, if you fancy reflecting on the magic of this year’s Fringe whilst helping secure the future of England’s biggest arts festival for next year, make sure you head to the Open Air Theatre for an extravagant evening of everything Fringe.
Julian Caddy, Managing Director of Brighton Fringe, commented, ‘This year’s Fringe has been extremely special for us. The outpouring of support from audiences and participants has been extremely meaningful, and we’re so grateful to everyone who has lent their support to the Crowdfunder, the gala, performed in, enjoyed or volunteered at all our events this year. The gala is sure to be a fantastic night and a wonderful way to spend a summer evening. Events like this really do make a difference to the future of Fringe, and are a fantastic way for our community to come together.’
