This week sees the return of the The Tringe, Preston’s Fringe Festival, full of comedy, music and theatre.
Tringe is run and organised by volunteers, and the first Tringe took place in July 2009 with more than 30 acts taking part, rising to 42 acts by 2010.
Acts include comedians from the Manchester and London circuits, new writers from the North West, local and regional theatre companies and more.
Blog Preston is an official media partner of the Tringe this year, and we’ll be covering as much of the festival as we can, with reviews, videos and interviews.
But this year the Tringe is bigger than ever before, and we need your help to make sure we document as much as we can.
If you’d like to write us a review of a Tringe performance, or take photos of the acts, get in touch. We have full media access to all the events and of course you’ll get to see each show that you see for free.
So let us know in the comments below, or email joseph(at)blogpreston.co.uk if you’d like to contribute. We’ll feature all work on the site over the course of the Tringe.
Tringe audiences range from seasoned theatre goers to people who have never been to a performance before. The venues are often unusual settings for performance, including local pubs, and provide a relaxed and informal atmosphere for the shows.
It’s an open-access festival and the organisers place accessibility at the forefront of what they do. Ticket prices for Tringe are kept at low levels to encourage everyone to come and see the shows.
