After a record-breaking year in 2019, with more than 600,000 attendees, Brighton Fringe had to cancel its 2020 festival at fairly short notice due to the first lockdown of the coronavirus pandemic in England.
However, the Fringe is back for 2021, slightly later in the year than usual, with a hybrid live and online programme of events.
BTG Editor David Chadderton spoke to Brighton Fringe CEO Julian Caddy about the festival and what it will be offering attendees this year, as well as the difficulties they have faced over the last year or so.
Brighton Fringe runs from Friday 28 May to Sunday 27 June 2021 at various venues around the town and online.
