Friday May 25th to Sunday June 10th 2018 which is now over. Our coverage for 2018 is below.

We are delighted and privileged to be covering Bath Fringe again.

“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.”

Bath Fringe 2018 runs from Friday May 25 to Sunday June 10 (and a few days either side). The 2018 programme is now available
