Exeter Fringe Festival

News about Exeter Fringe Festival

Since we first brought Exeter Fringe Festival to the city in 2019, things have changed beyond our wildest imaginings! It’s not just Covid, it’s the funding landscape, cultural organisations & leaders in the city, and changes in our own lives and careers too.

We’ve decided to step away from running Exeter Fringe Festival moving forward. It has been truly wonderful to be able to support artists in Exeter to create new things and perform their work. We’re particularly proud of the 2021 festival which went ahead against the odds, and supported a wide ranging programme of new work to be created in the heart of the city.

With that in mind we’ve been talking to the brains behind other cultural organisations in the city to see if it’s possible for some of the support that we provided for artists last year to continue in some form. Keep an eye out for announcements about that coming soon.

For now though, we’d like to thank all our fantastic partners who helped us to put on a festival in 2019 and 2021 and to all the artists and audiences we met along the way. Including Exeter Northcott Theatre, The Barnfield Theatre, Exeter Phoenix, Exeter Library, Maketank, and The Hall. It has truly been a pleasure working with you all and we’re excited to see what comes next.  We’ll be cheering you on!
