After a successful debut in June 2021, Chichester Fringe is bringing the magic of performance to a live audience.

From 1-3 July, the Fringe will be staging eight different shows in Graylingwell Chapel, as part of the Festival of Chichester where you can enjoy vocal talents, comedy, dance and much more. In the wider programme, your ribs will be tickled at a comedy night at Chichester Canal on 7 July, enjoy live music at Oxmarket Contemporary on Thursday 14 July, while on Saturday 16 July be treated to a poetry performance and a cabaret night at Chichester Canal.

This year’s Fringe promises a fantastic mix of new performances, ranging from drama, comedy, music and puppetry, through to poetry and dance. There’s Indie musician Jacob Palmer, comedy from TikTok stars The Sugarcoated Sisters, puppetry from Astra, dance from Arabesque, drama from Juvenile Behaviour Theatre, as well as a brand-new musical, The Girl in the Mirror.

Chichester Fringe supports and mentors up-and-coming performers from the local area and beyond, by providing a free and safe space to perform, and by enabling them to showcase their work directly to a receptive audience.

Chichester Fringe also gives opportunities for behind-the-scenes roles too. Volunteers are able developing their skills in stage management, photography, web design, social media and musical direction. It also gives Chichester venues the opportunity to use their spaces in innovative ways, supporting others in the community.
