The Watford Fringe is still going ahead. The worsening general COVID-19 situation has meant that we had to make changes to our Fringe plans to enable it to go ahead safely. So reluctantly, at short notice, we have implemented some of our contingency plans, which does mean some major changes to the schedule. There are 12 online only shows continuing online between 1st – 4th October, and 22 shows move to dates between 9th – 25th October that will have socially distanced audiences.

All existing ticket holders will be contacted and full refunds will be given for any cancelled show. Thank you for your support.

The Watford Fringe is back from Friday 1st October 2020 with
Music | Drama | Comedy | Improv | Dance | Poetry | Musical Theatre

We have worked hard to plan a flexible set of safe festival that incorporates social distancing and other safety considerations. We have added online streaming facilities so that the events can additionally reach an audiences that cannot or are reluctant to attend live events in person. We also contingency plans to cope with any last-minute changes in government or health advice.
