Featuring both international and local artists the Windsor Fringe Festival is the second oldest fringe in the U.K after Edinburgh. Run by volunteers, the two week festival provides an eclectic programme of accessible arts events and shows for everyone to enjoy and participate in.

Box Office 01753 743570


During the two week Fringe, we will be hosting over 40 events in 19 different venues in Windsor, including two schools, a pop up music venue at the Windsor Hospice Furniture Shop and two further locations featured in Time Out Top Windsor venues: The Loading Bay Café and The Windsor & Eton Brewery. Plus, we are very excited to be holding The Kenneth Branagh Drama Writing Award at the Old Court Arts Space.

Our 2018 Fringe features everything from theatre, art, comedy, music and family events to DJ nights, Fado and cocktails! All showcasing some amazing local, national and international talent.

This year’s Fringe also coincides with two important centenaries: the end of the First World War, and the Women’s Right to Vote. We are pleased to mark them with a range of events, including Eton College’s Art Trail and Exhibitions and A Suffragette Walking Tour of Windsor.

We hope you find this year’s Fringe programme entertaining, inspiring and, above all, enjoyable.
