Reading Fringe Festival

The Reading Fringe Festival is an award winning festival, started in 2013 by a marketeer, a producer and a writer. The Reading Fringe aims to support local emerging artists, provide an affordable platform for artists traveling up to the world famous Edinburgh Fringe and to welcome exciting, vibrant acts to the town from all of the world.
