Team Fringe celebrated at the top of the town’s iconic Gold Hill last week after announcing that the popular summer event is now open to performers to register.
The Fringe festival will again coincide with the North Dorset Gold Hill Fair so the team are working hard to build on last years success and fill the program with an even wider variety of artists.
Shaftesbury Fringe is ‘open access’ like the Edinburgh Fringe so anyone from anywhere can do anything they think will entertain people. Performers can contact the venue they fancy from a list of more than 50 in the town centre listed here.
If you would like to find out more about how you can get involved in this years festival you can follow us on Facebook for all the latest news.
