Step lightly, step carefully and watch what you pack

Most of the large Fringe venues are close to each other, within 10-15 minutes walking distance.

The Brighton Spiegeltent, The Warren, Sweet Venues, Junkyard Dogs, Komedia and The Rialto can all be easily strolled to.

Do take care you don’t get run over, by a car or a bike.

Also sort your tickets in advance if you can to avoid box office queue meltdown

Be prepared to have your bags searched and good and drink you have bought refused by security guards at the entrance to at least one of the big venues. Yes, evrn water. Disgraceful.

Big fringe is big business and you are the means to their end. And don’t completely blame them. Their costs are huge.

Horrendous tip: Bring wet wipes.

Go gently unto your Fringe, but be smart and wise, especially at hot, crowded weekends. It could be very busy indeed on Bank Holidays and weekends.
