Reading Fringe goes Digital
After a very nervous few weeks (and a ridiculous number of application drafts), the Reading Fringe team were relieved to hear we'd received emergency public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
This means we can crack on with delivering a digital Festival!
Running for six weeks from 17th July, we'll be delivering a digital programme of theatre, comedy, film, visual art and children’s shows, including two new commissions.
These will be a new work exploring "connection in a post-apocalyptic world" by theatre and dance project Love, Sex and Zombies, and an interactive online story for families from writer Helen Eastman, who wrote the stage version of In the Night Garden. This will be created in partnership with TimeTrap Escape Rooms.
Artist will not be charged a fee for participation in this year's festival, and the majority of shows will be accessed on a free to view or donations only basis, with all donations made via an artist's link going directly to the artist.
Artists who have not already signed up to participate are encouraged to apply to join the digital Fringe by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org for an event form.
