Colchester Fringe Logo


Colchester Fringe Festival returns for 2023

Over one extra-long weekend in October expect diverse world class fringe acts in pubs, shops, streets, cafes, theatres and mystery locations all over the city.

The aim is to support work by local emerging artists, whilst attracting performance companies to the town from across the U.K and overseas.​

​We believe that the Fringe is for everyone. Therefore, we are committed to using 100% accessible venues, keeping ticket prices low and promoting under-represented voices, including LGBTQ+, BAME and disabled people within our programme and festival team.

​We are proudly a non-profit festival and any money made will be put towards supporting artists and developing the Fringe for future years.
