Cardiff Fringe Theatre Festival is the result of a number of groups and individuals all working towards making something wonderful.


Bad Wolf
A production company based in South Wales, London and Los Angeles, Bad Wolf creates ambitious and relevant drama for the UK, US and global TV markets. It also established Screen Alliance Wales, an education and training scheme to engage with emerging talent to grow, nurture and build skills across the creative industries. As well as being a major sponsor of the 2018 festival, it is also offering a free talk on TV Drama development, and co-judging the TicketSource Best Writing Award.

Bridge Street Exchange
Brand new for September, Bridge Street Exchange Student Living offers stylish en-suites in shared apartments or en-suite studios in a fantastic central location in Cardiff. Close to all the shops, restaurants, bars and universities too! Media Production
