The Shaftesbury Fringe Festival

Shaftesbury Fringe is an open access performing arts festival that takes place every summer in the beautiful hilltop town of Shaftesbury, Dorset. The Fringe is a celebration of all things creative, which means anyone with a story to tell can put on a Fringe event.

We welcome both new and established artists to perform and exhibit in one of over 30 unique venues within our town, which range from traditional venues, like our arts theatre, the town churches and various pubs, to a mobile cheese van, including the rear garden of a dentist, the outside area of our local garden centre, and an estate agent’s shop floor. There truly is a venue for everyone.
