What is the Worcester Fringe?

Founded and produced by Worcester Theatres, the Worcester Fringe was established in 2021 and is an annual arts festival that has taken place all over the city. Supported in previous years by the University of Worcester, the Bransford Trust and partner venues such as Henry Sandon Hall and the Arch Rivals, the Worcester Fringe has always been about bringing fantastic and inspiring cultural events to Worcester.

This year we’re bringing the Worcester Fringe closer to home, with majority of performances taking place in our black box studio, the Swan Studio, at the Swan Theatre. This is the perfect place for aspiring and emerging creatives to show off their talent! Worcester Fringe 2024 is going to be an irresistible melting pot of Worcestershire’s finest artists and most exciting up and comers – perfect for all you culture lovers out there!

We’re making space for new ideas and new talent to flourish, and we want you to be a part of it! So, save the date, discover something new and be inspired by this stimulating, refreshing and uplifting festival of theatre and performance!
