Applications are now invited for next year’s Grassington Festival Fringe which runs between Saturday 16 June and Saturday 30 June 2018.
The Fringe exists to support and complement the Festival by providing an opportunity and support for performers, community groups and venues in Grassington and the surrounding area to independently programme or stage their own event as part of the Grassington Fringe running alongside Grassington Festival. These could include outdoor events, concerts, pub gigs, exhibitions, poetry readings, school events, open mornings and ‘taster sessions’ of regular events. The Fringe has become a very successful addition to the Festival by providing a platform for the development of local talent.
All Fringe events will be listed in a dedicated Fringe section of the Festival Event Guide, of which at least 25,000 copies are produced and distributed around the region, as well as a listing on the Festival website.
Grassington Festival will provide Box Office facilities for the sale of tickets – in person, by telephone and online. You will also be given the opportunity to sell your own tickets. In this instance we do request audience email addresses so that we can add this information into our mailing list.
The Festival Director and Fringe Director will work closely together to ensure your event does not clash with other similar events in terms of its content or timing, where possible.
An administration fee of £75 will be applicable (plus any extra charges the Festival may incur in hiring a suitable venue).
Please click here for the 2018 Festival Fringe Application Form and here for the 2018 Festival Fringe Terms and Conditions. Your attention is drawn particularly to the Promoter’s responsibilities around event management. Please take time to read these carefully. Note the closing date for applications is Wednesday 31 January 2018.
Once we have had the chance to select successful applicants we shall be in touch, at which point the administration fee will become payable. For any queries, please email: Fringe@grassington-festival.org.uk.
