Fringe Report is now closed. Fringe Report closed on its 10th anniversary, Thursday 12 July 2012. It remains online as a record of 10 exciting years in the arts. Till July 2013, previously unwritten content is being added to the site from the past 10 years, but we are no longer reviewing new material. You can still write to us on the existing email addresses. Good luck with your shows.About Us

Fringe Report is based in London, United Kingdom. We review fringe theatre, arts, independent and arthouse film, dance, performance, poetry, music - anything that falls off the edge of the mainstream, though we often cover that too, there are no rigid lines.
We publish 2-3 items a week all year round in London, and cover as many regional fringes as we can. We are an accredited reviewer to, and our awards are recognised by, Internet Movie Database (www.imdb.com), the definitive website of the worldwide film industry. We do in-depth interviews, lots of features, plus fashion, recipes (arts people have to eat, and dress), a pretty full list of London venues big and small and some from other towns, births, marriages, deaths, birthdays, gossip, and reports on parties (eg here). Fringe Report started on Friday 12 July 2002.
We review 50 shows at Edinburgh Fringe each year. It is the largest arts event in the world with over 2,000 shows. And we cover Edinburgh launches and gossip (eg here). We review 10 items each at London Film Festival, Dublin and Brighton Fringe, with reports over the years on others including Camden, Bath, Newbury, Reading, Montreal. If you want to file from your city anywhere in the world please do. We have permanent writers in London, New York, Dublin, Denver Colorado, Edinburgh, Dallas Texas, NorthEast England - and Hawaii.
We have around 12,000 regular readers spread entirely across the globe. Most of them are in Mainland Europe, England, Canada, United States, Republic of Ireland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland. We have readers in the Middle East, across Asia, in Vietnam, China, Australia. Wherever you are, whatever language you find most friendly, you're welcome at Fringe Report - as a reader, as a writer.
There's a newsletter too. As well as Fringe Report the website (www.fringereport.com) we send out a monthly newsletter around the 15th as a briefing and gossip loop to industry, showbiz professionals, prs, actors, producers, directors, composers, performers, the public, theatregoers, arts enthusiasts, venue managers, promoters, impresarios, journalists - and you if you like. You can subscribe free here.
We do 25 awards each year (Fringe Report Awards). They are announced in January and presented on any day mid February that isn't Valentine's Day, when the loved are glum and the single suicidal. You can nominate for the awards at any time during the year here
Our boards. We ask one person from each of our awards each year to form an advisory board. At the end of their year we ask them to join a long-term consultancy board. We also invite people who aren't at all connected to the arts but kindly bring other perspectives to the boards. In this way we draw together talent from all over the world, great people who help keep us on our toes, and know how to party.
And you?. If you are interested in writing, editing, or designing for Fringe Report or just want to say hello and tell us how your day's been going so far, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll look forward to hearing from you.
