Top 5 things to do at FRINGE
Here are the top 5 must-do things this Fringe:
Did you know that almost half the Fringe program is being presented by Western Australian artists? If you are catching a few shows this year, chances are you will see some local talent!
We have talent to spare in WA and Fringe loves to support it and the Festival has teamed up with Principal Partner Woodside to shine a spotlight on our Homegrown Heroes.
A Fringe Binge is not complete without seeing some Homegrown Heroes, so have a browse through the list and pick a couple out to see and support local artists.
Kick off your weekend with family-friendly entertainment on Friday evenings with the City of Perth’s Fringe Fridays.
Wander through the Twilight Hawkers Market, grab a bite and settle in to watch some of the best buskers from the around the world perform on the Forrest Place stage.
There is plenty on show to keep everyone of all ages entertained. It is free to watch but performers hat at the end, so keep some change handy.
The free Fringe fun on Sunday evenings is over at Yagan Square! Gather the fam or your gaggle of mates and come along for a taste of what the FRINGE WORLD has to offer with City of Perth Fringe Sundays.
Grab a bite, pick a spot at The Meeting Place amphitheatre and be entertained by a free teaser of a range of some of the best shows the program has to offer.
Hang around Yagan Square afterwards and soak up the cool Fringe vibes or even see another show while you are there!
Now for something you will not see anywhere else at FRINGE WORLD this year. The iconic Girls School in East Perth will be completely transformed into the dreamland of a young ghost.
The rooms and halls will take on a vibe of foreboding and impermanence inspired by Edgar Allan Poe, with a hint of Stranger Things and David Lynch.
You get to roam around and explore Girls School like never before and immerse yourself into this elaborate, immersive, super cool experience. No two visits are the same!
5. The Woodside Pleasure Garden
The Woodside Pleasure Garden is the Festival’s biggest and most popular playground for Fringe-goers and is it easy to see why!
A one-stop-shop of Fringe goodness – there are 11 venues, bites and bevvies available and plenty of free and ticketed shows and entertainment.
The best thing is that it caters for all ages – so you can bring the fam or a bunch of mates and hang out for hours and never be bored!
