“Welcome to Hastings Fringe. The original idea for the Fringe Festival was to create a platform to showcase new and original work by local talent. As an actor, director and writer, I had a new play that I wanted to try out in front of an audience to gauge the reaction. I kept meeting other like-minded artists in similar situations; so the first Hastings Fringe was established and took place at The Stables Theatre in 2015.

Our first three years have been a huge success with many performances sold out. 2018 promises to be bigger and bolder – more events, more venues, more colour, more performances, more creative experiences. This year we’re showcasing an exciting programme from talented local, national and international performers. We hope you make the most of the diverse programme making up this year’s Festival and, above all, that you have fun!”
