We're back for 2019!

Updated: Dec 6, 2018

We're inviting y'all to join us for Southside Fringe 2019...

Sign your venue up here.

We’re back for our seventh successful year. Southside Fringe Festival is happening between the 10th and 26th of May 2019! Get it in your diaries now.

There are a lot of great benefits of being part of the Fringe Family of venues. These benefits include a minimum of 12 posts per year on the Fringe social media. However, we do tend to post more than this for each venue. Your venue gets listed on our website year round and each of our venues gets a listing in our printed programme. More you ask? You also get discounts on adverts and when they launch you will also get discounts for listing in our What's On Guide and for advertorials. Even more, you say? You get to join in on the fun in May alongside a number of other Southside venues, event organisers, performers and the Fringe Family! What more do we need that an excuse to have a lot of Southside fun? You can find out more about the benefits of becoming a Southside Fringe venue here.

Thanks to the good hearts of the Southside creative community, the venues and a heap of hard work from our volunteers the Southside Fringe has been a self-funded arts and music festival, run entirely by volunteers since 2013. Since then the festival has gone from strength to strength with over 100 events in over 30 Southside Venues in 2018. Did you know that we took home the Best Scottish Festival award at the 2017 Scottish Hospitality Awards and in 2018 we won Highly Commended in the same category? In 2016 and 2017, with the support of local MP Stewart McDonald, we were commended in Westminster with an additional third mention in 2017 for the partnership production the festival coordinated with Baldy Bane Theatre Company, St Albert’s Primary School and the Tramway, working with Syrian families and exploring what it means to call home.

This year things have changed slightly and we have become a Community Interest Company. This means that we have more time to dedicate to the Fringe festival and work on some exciting new projects for 2019! Keep your eyes peeled for more info on this coming your way soon. The team can’t wait to see what Southside treasures 2019 will reveal.
