What are we looking for

 

We are an open-access Fringe that believes it's good to be different. With that in mind, for the first ever Colchester Fringe Festival we are looking for bold/ out-of-the-box performances. 

  • We are specifically looking for ORIGINAL or REIMAGINED work.

  • Between 45-60mins.

  • Your show should only require basic lighting and sound.

  • We encourage applications by artists from under-represented groups. We understand the economic and structural barriers that prevent such artists from performing and we look to counter these within our fringe model (as seen below).

What you get

  • Artists will receive 60% of their own ticket revenue. 

  • We will place you in one of our fringe-managed venues which are 100% wheelchair accessible.

  • No hire fee for your venue.

  • Technical support available for all your performances. 

  • Listed in our official fringe programme.

  • Marketing support.

  • We will try our best to provide billeting (free housing) to out-of-town artists.

  • The chance to win some of our awards.

  • A Fun FRINGEY Weekend!

 

Selection Process

  • Juried (Our artists/ companies will be selected based on the application they provide).

  • We are aiming for our programme to consist of 50% (Local/ East Anglian), 25% (National) and 25% (International) companies.

  • Selected Artists will have a deadline to accept their place and to pay their relevant fees. If they miss this deadline then their place will be allocated to another applicant.

 Cost

Selected Artists will be required to pay a £50 admin fee and a £100 refundable deposit (providing they have completed all performances).
