Head to Barnstaple for Fringe Theatre Fest 2018

Fringe Theatre Fest is a celebration of all things theatre! Performers from North Devon are once again getting ready for a range of theatre shows, held throughout Barnstaple, showcasing talent, styles and variety. 

It's a great opportunity for our guests to savour a wide variety of theatre, just a short distance from us in Bideford.

From professional theatre companies at the top of their game to community companies and schools presenting their work, people from all walks of life will be taking part to keep audiences amused!

Expect to meet aspiring professionals, schools, colleges, youth theatres and other group organisations.   

Fringe TheatreFest is supported by a large group of experienced volunteers, many of which are professionals in box office, stewarding and technical expertise.

There are 21 ticketed venues within Barnstaple, offering something for everyone, including Green Lanes Shopping CentreThe Queen's Theatre, the town square, the Pannier Market plus many more.  

In these venues, they'll be 262 different performances and 78 different shows.

If you fancy a taste of theatre suitable for the whole family, why not travel around the town and watch a performance at one of the many venues available or catch some pop-up displays along the high street! 

If you'd like some accommodation for the Theatre Fest long weekend in Barnstaple, book your room at The Royal in Bideford and combine theatre with a stunning break in North Devon.
