We established in 2021

as a direct response to the COVID pandemic.

We recognised that performers needed a safe space to perform. In 2022 a series of hybrid online/in-person events took place, with 2023 our first fully in-person Fringe.


The Fringe also gives opportunities for behind-the-scenes roles, including stage management / tech, photography, web design, social media and musical direction.

Created out of a need.

Our aim is to support and mentor up-and-coming performers of the local area and beyond by breaking down barriers.

We provide a free, safe space to perform and enabling them to showcase their work.


Promoting the diversity of the arts in Chichester, we are proud to be working in partnership with other local organisations.
