Need More Fringe!

Media Release for Immediate Use: Wednesday 4 December 2013
From: New Zealand Fringe Festival


The New Zealand Fringe Festival is stoked to bring Wellington our biggest festival ever!

Our 2014 programme features 121 events, performing over 700 shows in 45 different venues. 45% of the festival events are free or koha, 75% are from Wellington – 95% is Kiwi and our international 5% comes from America, Australia, Malaysia and France.

So do you NEED MORE FRINGE in your life? More adventure, excitement, and innovation? More bizarre fantasticality? More majesticalised madness?


Among the veritable feast of events we have in store for you is a mix of … hard-core bingo, fairy tales on fire, a musical for toddlers, books, buses, dinner with friends, ghosts, aerial yoga, sci-fi, great advice, a trip down an old forgotten stream, films by city lights, and a visit from Uther Dean.

We are very excited to share all this talent, creativity and hard work with you 7 Feb-2 Mar. Our 2014 programme is unleashed Wednesday 4th December 2013, and full programme and ticketing details will be available

We encourage (dare?) you to try something new – several new things. It’ll be fun! Or touching.* Or inspiring. Or weird. Or all of these things.

Essentially Yours,
Fringe x

* Be prepared - you might actually be touched by Fringe Artists.
