‘We Deserve A Party’ – Shaftesbury Fringe Chairman Opens Four-Day Performance Festival

Shaftesbury Fringe 2021 is here. “It’s been a tough 18 months. I think we deserve a party,” says Fringe committee co-chairman James Thrift.

“People have been so isolated over the last year and now is an opportunity for the town to come together and have a great weekend,” added co-chairman Rob Neely.
