Staff Picks: Fringe 2019

Brighton Fringe is such an thrilling event for us to be a part of. We love the extra energy everyone has, and there’s not a corner of the city that doesn’t have something exciting around it.

There’s so much to choose from, it can sometimes be a bit overwhelming to narrow down. Here’s a round up of things we’re particularly looking forward to!


Notorious Women of Brighton is offering the chance to learn about some of the wonderful women who have been part of Brighton’s colourful history. Sign us up!

Only in Brighton! Promises intriguing information alongside giggles, with an alternative view of Brighton.

Our Alex went to see My Greatest Period Ever and said it was really fun and funny, and super duper informative! Anything that spreads the word about natural bodily functions sounds good to us.

Workshops and Events

Of course, we’ve saved the best Fringe event till last (not that we’re biased). Come and Learn to Throw a Pot here at The Painting Pottery Cafe, for just £12.50! Not only will you have a great time throwing with the help of our studio assistants, you’ll meet likeminded people and you get to keep the pot, which we’ll glaze for you so it’s food safe and water tight - perfect for a tapas bowl or cactus planter!
