Brighton Fringe To Start Off With A Bang

To celebrate the opening of its biggest ever festival, Brighton Fringe has joined forces with The Warren to kick things off with a bang by laying on its first ever fireworks display.

Brighton Fringe’s opening night fireworks party will start at 9pm on Friday, 6th May at The Warren.

This free special event on Friday, 6th May will see fireworks launched from the top of St Peter’s Church to mark the opening of England’s largest arts festival. This year’s Brighton Fringe features a record-breaking 900 different events including smash hit family shows, international cabaret, spoken work, live music, visual art, world class theatre and comedy.

Julian Caddy, Brighton Fringe’s Managing Director, said: “As England’s largest arts festival it feels only right to start with something massive and spectacular from the top of one of Brighton’s most iconic buildings in the centre of town. I’m really pleased to be working with the lovely people at The Warren who are helping make the start of this year’s Brighton Fringe an incredible one.”

This event is free but space in Brighton Fringe’s viewing area is limited, so advance booking is essential.

Tickets are available from the Brighton Fringe website, by calling 01273 917272 or by visiting the Brighton Fringe Box Office at One Stop Travel on Western Road.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this article has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
