Shaftesbury Fringe is waiving registration fees for performers at this year’s event.
Yesterday, the Fringe committee agreed to offer free registration in recognition of the financial challenges that many singers, musicians, actors, dancers, artists and entertainers are currently facing.
Registration for performers opens on 20th March.
The registration payment normally provides one of the main sources of income for the volunteer-run festival. The income funds the extensive promotion and marketing of the event, decorations and insurance.
In our Alfred interview, you will hear from Fringe’s James Thrift and Rob Neely. The men are also appealing for potential performance venues in Shaftesbury town centre.
Fringe will take place between 27th and 30th August.
