Last call for Preston Tringe

David Upton

Preston’s annual Tringe Festival—devoted to fringe theatre, music and comedy—is only two months away, but there’s still time for performers to book in, and for volunteers to assist behind the scenes.

The Tringe, performed in venues throughout the city, features productions from local artists to national acts fresh from performing in Edinburgh's Fringe Festival. The aim is to provide something for everyone to enjoy.

This year the festival will be highlighting its close link with Edinburgh when musician Sean Keefe cycles from the Scottish capital to Lancaster, before heading into Preston down the Lancaster Canal—on a pedalo.

Sean, who is undertaking the journey to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support, will be joined by a number of different musicians and comedians during this final 42-mile leg.

The artists will be performing at a number of venues en route to Preston, entertaining the public in the run-up to the festival.

Meantime get in on the act yourself, either as a performer or as part of the marketing, technical or front-of-house support.
