Set up by Managing Director Nick Wyschna in 2013, Guildford’s largest independent multi-arts festival which Nick runs with his wife Charlotte Wyschna, is an open-access celebration featuring theatre, comedy, poetry, music, visual arts, family-friendly shows, talks and free events.

Nick Wyschna said: “We are back! I can’t tell you how excited Charlotte and I are at the prospect of a ‘normal’ Fringe Festival this year. It’s clearly not just us who are excited about getting back to live events as the artists and producers have flooded in and we have a jam-packed programme of entertainment for you to enjoy.

“We have been away for a while but our values are still the same, we want the arts to be accessible for everyone that wants to enjoy them. With this in mind I am very pleased to say that we have several free events during the Fringe and we have kept the average ticket price at around £9. We hope this means you’ll be able to come out and have some fun with us.”
