The end is nigh and the best party is yet to come.

Fringe 06 Closing Night ‘Monsta’ Awards Ceremony
Paramount Theatre, Courtenay Place

Forget the Oscars, it’s time for the ‘Monsta’s!
FREE Closing night Party!

Director Karen Blyth sees the Awards Ceremony as an important send off for Fringe 06. “It’s a chance for myself and the Fringe Board to congratulate and celebrate all the Fringe participants. This year has been an outstanding year for quality shows and talented artists. There’s been a great buzz around town regarding Fringe shows. If this is an indication of things to come then our Fringe Festival can only get better and better!”

The Fringe 06 ‘Monsta Awards Ceremony contains thirteen categories and so thirteen chances for Fringe artists to win their very own ‘monsta.’ The ‘monsta’ awards are designed by Matt Hunkin and sculpted by Carlos Wedde. Prizes (sponsors products) will also be allocated to the winners on the night.

Entertainment on the night includes Sam Manzanza Band and Hot Dance Music (afro music and dancehall party tunes to shake the booty) and DJ Ladies – Twee Jays.

All are invited to the final Fringe festivities at the Paramount Theatre, Sunday March 5, 5pm. So come along and see if your favourite Fringe 06 show picks up a Monsta!
