Bath Fringe Festival: Bedlam Fair Call Out

Bath Fringe has been running Bedlam Fair (the outdoor celebratory and street arts bit, 2-3 Jun) for over twenty-five years now. We've always liked to present and encourage new work and over the past few years have developed a programme to encourage and support new work / emerging artists in the sector and in Bedlam. Bath is well provided when it comes to sites for outdoor and intervention work plus our event is early in the season giving participants in the scheme a chance to find out whether the new work really works with a live audience ... while there’s still got time to fix it!

We’d love to hear from you if you think you satisfy some of the following criteria:

  • At an the early stage of your career
  • Are already established but want to try out new work
  • Are based in the South West
  • Are from a community that is under-represented in the performing arts

The project offers companies workshop time before the performance weekend with matched Outdoor Arts professionals to hone skills and polish the shows, as well as get business advice and a session with our events manager.

On performance days, artists are paid a daily fee; lunch is available and some expenses may be payable (travel / accommodation). The performance will be peer reviewed and a photographic and film record will be available and archived on our web-site.
