Manchester seeking fringe performances

David Upton

Got an idea for a fringe show?

Registration for the sixth Greater Manchester Fringe July 1 to 31 is open supporting new talent and premièring new work by established artists.

Greater Manchester Fringe wants to hear from writers, theatre companies, artists, poets, puppeteers, comedians, musicians, DJs, filmmakers and anyone who wants to put on a children's event.

Last year's debuts included People Zoo who sold out Hope Mill Theatre in Ancoats with Franz Kafka's The Trial and took it to Edinburgh Fringe.

Other fringe performers have included Phill Jupitus, Robin Ince, Dave Haslam, Justin Moorhouse, Gein's Family Giftshop and Paddy Considine in conversation at the Tim Peaks Diner.
