Watford Fringe, 22 Sep – 8 Oct 2023

Calling local performers – your Watford Fringe needs you

If you’re a performer now’s your chance to sign up to be part of this year’s Watford Fringe Festival – the amazing local annual arts showcase.

The Fringe is now in its seventh year – temporaily going online during the pandemic lockdown – and organisers are planning an even bigger and better creative festival for 2023.

Every year, venues across Watford host an extraordinary live line-up of great theatre, music, comedy, dance, magic and family fun-filled shows. Last year there were over 70 performances headlined by satirist, social media sensation and Chortle Award winner Rosie Holt.

Anyone and everyone is welcome to apply, there’s no selection criteria. The Watford Fringe aims to give anyone the chance to perform and showcase their talents, from very experienced performers and companies, to ambitious newcomers.

To take part and be included in the festival programme, you’ll need to register your event online by completing and submitting an online event registration through Eventotron.

Applications for events that will be included in the printed brochure will need to be complete by the end of July.  Applications that will be included in online listings need to be complete by the end of August.

If you need any help along the way when registering your event, please contact us by emailing sharon.gaffney@pumphouse.info

We look forward to seeing your performance!
