BBC, Metro, Time Out & more preview digital Fringe

As we go online as a festival for the first time, Reading Fringe Digital has caught the eye of many media outlets – local, national and international!

In May leading theatre industry magazine The Stage covered our move online thanks to Arts Council England funding, as did Berkshire Live, Independent Reading and The Henley Standard.

This week saw Reading Fringe Digital picked as an entertainment highlight for Metro, BBC South, top comedy website Chortle, They Did I Can Too and even Time Out New York.

BBC Berkshire dedicated the 17 July morning show to a Reading Fringe special with several artists featured as guests. Broadway World & the Reading Chronicle reported on our most accessible festival yet, with over half of shows being captioned and the majority available free.
