Fringe Basics: 

Fringe is easy if you keep a few things in mind: 

1) All shows will start on time

2) We don't let anyone in after the doors have closed

3) We can only accept cash at the door. All of the ticket prices shown include all fees and service charges. For a range of ticket options, see our ticket page.

Other Helpful Tips: 

There is more to do at the Fringe! Check out information about special events like VisualFringe, the Performer Showcase, and much more. All Extracurricular Activities can be found here.

Did You Know? 

All participants in the London Fringe are drawn by a lottery. Yes, that is truly how the line-up is decided each year. The artists also keep 100% of their set ticket price (less service charges). When you buy a ticket to the performance, you are directly supporting artists and creativity!
