"I think the Greater Manchester Fringe is excellent because it's just another example of the get on with and stick it on attitude that makes Greater Manchester an exciting place to be for all kinds of artists. Even lazy arse comedians don't have an excuse"
Arthur Bostrom Welcomes the Fringes Return
Famed for his role as Officer Crabtree, Arthur revealed how honoured he was to have been invited to become the patron for the first Greater Manchester Fringe Festival and offered to take an active role in promoting the festival.
Arthur, who lives in Manchester, said at last year's launch party.
"These are tough times so the fringe is really, really important. For me, I did a couple of JB Shorts and from that I got jobs and I've been in the business 34 years."
Manchester Fringe Festival 2013
Following the great success of the Greater Manchester Fringe Festival, held during July 2012, we are excited to announce the return of the Fringe for 2013.
The Fringe has four patrons who are Arthur Bostrom, Shobna Gulati, Justin Moorhouse and Stella Grundy who have leant their personal support to help further develop the Manchester Fringe.
Fringe ticket prices are very attractive starting from £3.00 and usually no more than £10.
The Fringe offers opportunities for event organisers and production companies to present and promote their work directly to the whole of the Greater Manchester Area.
The Fringe can also help production companies locate spaces available, during the Fringe, for their performances or events. Please contact us directly to discuss your requirements.
The Fringe Tickets will be available to be purchased online from the end of May 2013 and there will also be a small allocation of tickets, for most events, at the door.
