This year, the Brighton Journal is going to be on the scene at the Fringe reviewing events, interviewing artists, and voicing public opinions. The channel is called BJ TV, which is an abbreviation of Brighton Journal (not what you were thinking – you dirty people).
The Fringe is the largest open-access arts festival in England, that embraces art of every form and welcomes artists from all around the world. Their vision is to be ‘a resource that stimulates, educates and develops audiences and artistic communities‘. At the heart of Brighton Journal, we value Brighton’s vibrant scene and want to celebrate great people, so it’s a perfect pairing.
“The Fringe is a unique and special moment so make sure you take the time to go beyond and explore all there is to offer.” (Julian Caddy, CEO Brighton Fringe)
At last years Fringe, there were 1008 events in over 164 venues across the city and over596,000 people attended. Whilst this is a great selection, there’s one problem – too much to choose from!
With so much on at The Fringe, it can be hard to know where the best places to go are, and that’s where we have you covered. By heading to a range of shows, talking to artists and chatting to people on site, we offer you a chance to explore what’s going on from the comfort of your home.
Whether you are interested in comedies, cabaret, circus, kids events, music, film, literature, workshops, international shows, local celebrities, stimulating theatre or those performances so whacky that they are uncategorisable, stay tuned with us and be involved.
“It is an unbelievable assembly of creative work and thanks to the many thousands of people from every age and background, from Brighton and Hove, across the UK and all over the world, who have come together to amuse, entertain and challenge.” (Julian Caddy, CEO Brighton Fringe)
