About the Festival

Guildford Fringe Festival

Guildford Fringe Festival is one of the youngest Fringe Festivals in the world but with one of the biggest hearts!

Guildford Fringe is a open access multi-arts festival in the heart of Guildford Town Centre which runs for the month of July every year.

In this historic and beautiful town Guildford Fringe Festival invites all artistic genres to get involved, it is literally open to everyone!

We are becoming know for edgy, exciting and diverse events that are shown at a number of venues in Guildford Town Centre which range from theatre, burlesque, comedy, kids events, music, dance, exhibitions, talks, workshops and cabarets!

Taking place in July means that we attract producers, acts and artists to Guildford to preview their work that they are taking up to Edinburgh Fringe which is the largest Fringe Festival in the world! Can’t be a bad thing can it to have some of these events in Guildford.

The dates for Guildford Fringe Festival 2017 are 1st – 29th July.

In 2016 we were spread across 12 venues with nearly 90 events happening and we had 7500 people attend. 2017 sees Guildford Fringe Festival celebrate its 5th year!  It is already shaping up to be a far larger affair and we cannot wait… bring it on!

As mentioned earlier this a completely open-access festival and anyone can be involved and entered into the programme of events for a small entry fee. We can accept any form of art and, in our opinion, the more diverse the better so do get in touch and show us what you’ve got!
