Colchester Fringe Festival is happening in Autumn 2021!

Yes that's right.... Britain’s first city, is holding its first ever Fringe.

Over one extra-long weekend in October we’ll be putting on diverse world class fringe acts in pubs, shops, streets, cafes, theatres and mystery locations all over our ancient and wonderful town.

Inspired by our love of the Edinburgh Fringe and the other 250+ fringe festivals we decided to make it happen here in Colchester too.
