Bath Fringe 2022

The Bath Fringe is a festival of all the arts, with few rules as to what should be in or out – it’s what people want to do, and what venues in Bath want to put on. It all happens for 2 long weeks & 3 weekends (17 days or thereabouts) in early summer, in the beautiful city of Bath.

We are a Fringe of the ‘classic’ kind (like Edinburgh, Brighton & so on) and among the principles of those is that anyone can put an event in (for a fee, that pays for the programmes we print and put online) if they can organise it. In practice most programming is done by Bath venues, local promoters, or by the artists themselves, and a little bit by the Festival workers & committee. This all comes together so that just about everything in this programme is there because somebody around the place is really enthusiastic about it, and we’re sure that’s a good thing. The artists have also had to work to get this far: the festival is not paid for out of council tax, lottery money, deep corporate pockets or benefactors (tho’ we do have a little from all of those): the shows are financed by artists and venues – and ultimately your ticket money or trade. This art needs your personal investment.

The 2022 Bath Fringe is running from Friday 27th May – Sunday 12th June so there is plenty of time for you to soak up plenty of events. Take a look at the schedule here.
