Bedford Festival Fringe






Now over for 2018. Details for 2019 coming soon. Our 2018 coverage is below.


Welcome to our coverage of Bedford Festival Fringe 2018 which is over now for 2018, Our coverage for 2018 is below.

Bedfringe boasts some excellent theatre shows that arrived from other Fringes (such as Brighton) and are Edinburgh-bound.

Bedford is also very easily accessible by road and train and Londoners can do a day and/or an evening there easily. So, a staging post to Edinburgh, but also a rich, varied and impressive Fringe in its own right.

The Fringe takes a different format this year with more crammed into less dates.
