|~ Marlborough Theatre venue ~|
Winners of last year’s “Best Venue” award at Brighton Fringe 2014, The Marlborough Theatre, are now welcoming applications for their 2015 programme.
Taking place throughout May at hundreds of venues across Brighton and Hove, Brighton Fringe is England’s largest arts festival and the third largest open access arts festival in the world. Every year the showcase of diverse art forms offers both local talent and artists from across the globe the opportunity to find new audiences and gain valuable media exposure. The Marlborough is at the heart of this fantastic celebration of culture.
The Marlborough Theatre is one of the best equipped and flexible small-scale spaces on the Fringe. The beautiful proscenium arch stage, complete with velvet curtains, sits above a friendly and eclectic pub and hosts over 30 shows each year during the festival. Throughout the rest of the year The Marlborough continues to present exciting and boundary-pushing work to a diverse public from all walks of life. It’s also the home of Pink Fringe, year-round producers of Queer performance.
Last year’s line-up on the Fringe included “Best Performance” award winning play “Thief” by Liam Rudden, Argus Angel for comedy to Casual Violence, Rosana Cade’s “Sister”, named Outstanding Show by Fringe Review, and two sell-out shows by comedy stars of the future Sleeping Trees. In previous years they have also attracted work by the likes of Neil Bartlett and Bette Bourne.
