Exeter Fringe Festival – What’s Next?

Published July 4, 2022

Save the date - Sunday 23rd October 2022.  

Having relaunched Exeter Fringe Festival in 2019, Alex & Elaine have recently decided to step away from running future festivals. With so many Devon-based artists and companies looking for the kind of development and performance opportunities that the Fringe had started to offer, a group of Exeter-based arts organisations has come together to make a smaller Fringe event happen later this year, and to host a gathering, open to anyone involved or interested in theatre and performance in Exeter, to discuss the future of the Exeter Fringe and what we can do to continue to support performance artists based in the city.

We’re hosting a day of work-in progress performances at Exeter Phoenix on Sunday 23rd October 2022, the culmination of a week of residencies for Devon-based artists hosted by Exeter Library, Exeter Northcott Theatre, Exeter Phoenix, Kaleider, MakeTank, Exeter College, The Hall and Theatre Alibi –  tap here for the call-out & application guide  to apply for one of these spaces.

After the sharing, we’re delighted that Performance-in-Exeter will be hosting a discussion on the future of Exeter Fringe, which we hope will provide the building blocks for future events.

Full details of the event will be released in the coming months.
