Final Arts by The Sea 2017 Fringe Event

Produce Your Own Fringe Event at the 2017 Arts by the Sea Festival

Venues, promoters, artists and community groups are invited to submit an event to become a part of the Fringe festival for Arts by the Sea in Bournemouth.

Spoken word, live music, DJ clubnights, creative workshops and artistic exhibitions: we welcome applications for events of all shapes and sizes. Fringe events are expected to take place within the 9th and 28th of October (Arts by the Sea’s core programming takes place from the 14th to the 21st of October)

Submission is on a rolling basis. We will accept applications at any time between March 1st and August 1st. However, it is recommended that applications are submitted as early as possible to allow the Festival Team to integrate successful events into marketing and publicity campaigns. (Please note that fringe applications made after July 1st won’t be in the Festival brochure, but will be promoted on wesbite and socials and on posters/flyers)

Venues for the 2017 festival encompass Bournemouth’s gardens, beachfront and pier, as well as over a dozen small gig spaces, theatres, libraries and cafes which participate in the Fringe. The theme this year is ‘Plastic Beach’, which invites artists, Fringe organisers and creative partners to explore the tension between ecology and industry.
