Guildford Fringe Festival, a multi-arts festival which runs every July, was set up in 2013 and is now Guildford’s largest, independent arts festival.  Due to Covid-19 Guildford Fringe Festival 2020 has, sadly, been cancelled.

Guildford Fringe is a very small business, run by two full-time employees, Nick Wyschna and Charlotte Bateup, who said:

“The two main months of artistic output and financial income at Guildford Fringe are July (Guildford Fringe Festival) and December (Guildford’s Adult Panto). Losing one of these months is incredibly terrifying for us and puts us in a position of uncertainty.

It is far more than a full time job. In all honestly it’s a pleasure to be part of the community and to add to Guildford’s cultural scene but we cannot do this without money. Ticket sales are the bulk of our income and without events there will be zero income.

We have set up a Crowdfunder campaign: https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/guildford-fringe-festival. Any money raised will go directly back into Guildford Fringe Festival and ensure that we have a festival in 2021.”
