With deep roots in Reading, we’re also proud of our friendship with Reading’s twin city of Düsseldorf and our partnership with artists in Armenia, Norway, Spain, and America.

In 2022 we’re celebrating our 10th anniversary and we’re delighted to offer a broad range of artistic forms from local, national and international performers at every level of their career. We have a mixed programme of curated work and open access, both live and digital across three days in October.

Despite the challenges of the last few years we created the award-winning Reading Fringe Digital 2020, reaching over 13,000 households across six continents, and supporting over 130 artists.

After taking time off in 2021 to plan and develop, we’re coming back for our 10th year stronger than ever, and we hope you’ll join us on the journey into our second decade!
