Brighton Fringe 2013 is reporting strong interest as it looks to attract its programme for this year, with bookings up by more than 15 per cent already.
Spokeswoman Kata Gyöngyösi said: “2012 was the biggest Brighton Fringe to date with a total of 743 events (including over 170 free events) housed in 192 venues across the city.
“Early January 2012, 123 events were registered to take part in England’s largest arts festival. 2013 is looking set to be even bigger, with 143 events already registered.”
She said: “Old favourites such as Nick Pynn, Lynn Ruth Miller and the Faulty Towers Dining Experience will return for another year, and over 15 new spaces will be opened up to even more audiences across the four weeks, including someone’s basement and the also intimate and new Dukebox Theatre.”
Fringe director Julian Caddy said: “To include both the May bank holidays and the half term week will allow audiences of all ages and backgrounds to engage with the festival, and the producers, performers and artists that make it, more than ever before.”
Registration is until February 4. Tickets on sale from February 27 with the printed brochure hitting the streets mid-March.
