Tips on Getting Started

Becoming a registered Fringe venue is not something to take on lightly, it is hard work yet extremely rewarding at the same time. You will need to think about your venue and the space(s) you have available, what works and what doesn’t.

You should consider:

»   What you hope to achieve.

»   What spaces do you have available.

»   What art-forms and artists will suit your venue.

»   What technical support, facilities and marketing you can offer artists.

»   What performance days and times will best complement your existing business.

»   What you need to budget for to cover things like marketing and staffing of your Fringe venue and program.
