Thanks For Supporting Watford Fringe 2023
So the curtain comes down on another fantastic Watford Fringe Festival.
And what a festival it was. More than 100 performances and over 2,000 tickets sold. We had everything from powerful drama to laugh-out-loud stand-up comedy. We enjoyed a wide range of music from Big Band to folk, rock, soul, funk and blues. We had bubbles, hypnotism, puppets and dance. We staged world premieres and five star shows form the Edinburgh Fringe. And we welcomed West End stars, TV legends, international singers and fantastic local talent.
We just want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made it all possible, especially the support of Watford Borough Council, all our Fringe venues and the dozens of volunteers who gave up their time to promote the shows and made sure our audiences were so well looked after.
2023 was the seventh year of the Watford Fringe. It first took place in 2016 as a way to support great local talent to develop and perform their shows and to bring high quality performing arts to local audiences to enjoy. It has grown and grown over this time, even temporarily going online during the pandemic lockdown. Every year, venues across Watford host an extraordinary live line-up of great theatre, music, comedy, dance, magic and family fun-filled shows.
We’ll be giving ourselves a short breather but then it will be straight on to planning next year’s festival.
