The Preston Tringe is returning to its original calendar slot – the week before the Edinburgh Fringe opens. The 2015 Festival is delighted to present previews of 15 shows on their way up to Edinburgh, from 28th July to 2nd August.
Many other shows have also entered this year’s Tringe Festival, which is hosted at The Angel on Lune Street and Korova Arts Café & Bar on Charnley Street in Preston city centre.
As in previous years, the 2015 Tringe features a wide variety of theatrical, comic, musical and other artistic events.
Some performers will be familiar to regular Tringe-goers, but are bringing brand new shows to Preston. Others are coming to the city from all around the country for the first time, just before making their mark on the world’s largest Arts Festival.
A free 8-page printed brochure of the full programme will be available from 2 July, but details of all shows are already featured on the Preston Tringe Facebook Group.
Nearly all the main performance slots over the 6-day Festival are booked solid, but there are shows anyone can still become involved with. These include the Open Mic night at Korova on the 28th July, the Short Story Slam at The Angel on Friday 31st, and The SPARK Preston true story-telling club at The Angel on 1st August.
Most events are adopting the Edinburgh Free Fringe model whereby events are free to enter and a voluntary donation may be made at the end of the show. The revenue is divided between the performers and the Preston Tringe to cover costs.
Volunteers for helping out Front of House or elsewhere with this not-for-profit Festival are also very welcome to apply by contacting the Preston Tringe Festival.
