The final countdown for the Brighton Fringe has now officially started. Tonight the 2017 edition of Brighton Fringe will be launched with a big opening night at The Warren and fireworks from the top of St Peter’s Church.
The fireworks will start at 9.45 pm tonight and can be viewed from many sites in the city area. There is a special viewing site on the South Side of St Peter’s Church. There still are free tickets available to access the site. Gates will open at 7.30 pm and there will be free entertainment from 8.45 pm on.
“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.” That’s what Julian Caddy, Brighton Fringe’s Managing Director, said about the opening night.
From tomorrow on, countless venues all over Brighton will be hosting events and shows until 4 June. When the programme was announced in March, the festival was said to feature over 970 shows. Organizers now announced that this year’s festival will host a record breaking number of 1000 shows and events. This has never happened in the festival’s history before.
