Welcome to the Cardiff Fringe Theatre Festival

This is the second year of the festival and it will be running from the 15th - 22nd of July 2017.

Last year brought us an eclectic mix of theatre accompanied by other events including a scratch night, poetry night and workshops, all to be expanded upon this year!

2017 is jam packed with more shows than last year with 60% of the companies heralding from our own fair city! We have brought back the scratch and poetry nights by popular demand and now also have a drag night and some SLAM competitions, and a whole programme of “Free Fringe” workshops, talks and seminars.

SO, without further ado, enter our garden of earthly desires (...website) and browse our wares (...shows/events etc). Plan your festival week and snap up those tickets! Check out the stellar companies and the glorious venues that they will be performing in and keep up to speed with all of the goings on.


TicketSource Festival Favourite Award
As well as supporting us in other ways, our sponsor TicketSource is running an award! After each event the ticket buyer will be sent a link asking for thoughts on the show and that information will help a panel decide on the fringe favourite. Watch this space for more info in the coming weeks.
