New Gate Fringe Festival 2021

We're delighted again to be be a part of the New Gate Fringe Festival run by our partner organisation North West Cultural Partnership.  The festival runs from Monday 26th July 2021 until Friday 6th August! The New Gate Fringe Festival offers a unique blend of music, dance, drama, art, comedy, tours and debates. We would encourage people to attend as many of the events as possible; spaces are limited, so early booking is advised. We are delighted to see a return of in person events, although we have decided to air in the side of caution, with smaller and many more localised events. We hope that the programme will engage various communities throughout the city and district. To find out whats on check out the festival digital brochure here. To book tickets for an event visit:
