July 2014 saw the second Guildford Fringe Festival, featuring over seventy events performed at nine diverse locations in and around Guildford – a real expansion of last year’s festival at the Star Inn.
The 2014 Fringe Festival was fantastic from start to finish. Festival-goers came from far and wide to see the performances, nearly doubling last year’s numbers. Burlesque from the Hundred Watt Club and comedy bingo with Gringo Bingo played to packed houses at GLive and the Star Inn while Jack the Ripper: Facts No Fiction thrilled audiences at Guildford’s Keep and Much Ado About Nothing delighted the crowd at Clandon Wood Natural Burial Reserve as much as it must have in London over 500 years ago. There was also music and food and comedy – you name it, the Guildford Fringe Festival had it.
Creative Director Nick Wyschna is – as you would imagine – so buoyed up by this that he’s already organising the Guildford Fringe Festival 2015, when he’s hoping to increase the event and audience numbers yet again. If you’d like to be part of it, whether you’re a potential performer or sponsor or you just want to come and watch, get yourself on the mailing list today by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
