Open Meeting confirmedTheatre application process confirmed and in progress
The annual Fringe Open Meeting takes place on Monday January 9th at 6pm., at Burdall’s Yard, London Road (near Cleveland Place, 7a Anglo Terrace, BA1 5NH, to be precise).
It’s your chance to come along and meet the organising committee – and it’s our chance to meet some of you – to find out how the Fringe works, discuss possibilities, maybe find out if there’s anyone else doing something that you could usefully connect to. It’s designed to be a useful meeting (and if it’s not, let us know!) but it’s not completely imperative: if you can’t come, EMail Wendy@bathfringe.co.uk, and you’ll get on a list who will be circulated with information about things that actually are imperative – the programme submission process, for example.
We’ll have our Bath Venues For Hire list updated by then, mail us if you can’t be there and want to see that, but of course as of right now we haven’t updated it yet. There’s no steaming hurry: the Fringe process will give you something like 2 months after the meeting before we need to hear back from you (though earlier can be more helpful).
There are a couple of useful resources (click to access) online, currently only in their 2016 versions (they will be updated before the meeting):
Info for artists
Info for venues
This year, our Theatre programme has a different application stream for some venues:
If you want your show to go into buzzy Burdall’s Yard, there’s an application process here: www.bathspalive.com/fringe. During Bath Fringe 2016 it hosted 46 events of professional, local and student theatre over 16 days, including many sold out shows – the venue was alive with both students and artists all day long.
If you want to be part of the Fringe week (4th – 11th June) at The Mission Theatre, the bijou city centre venue (2 performance spaces) has information for Fringe companies at www.missiontheatre.co.uk/bath-fringe-festival-2017/ including information about the venue if you’ve not been there (and you should do, it’s an atmospheric space).
Both of these processes have a deadline of January 31st. If you don’t get a place in either venue, there is still time to do the regular Fringe event process, using a different venue (which you or the venue will have to organise).
Fringe Arts Bath – the visual arts event – has its own application process. More details on www.fringeartsbath.co.uk/
