Celebrating NZ Fringe Festival 2014

The 2014 NZ Fringe Festival has come to a sensational glittering end, with an award ceremony at St Peter’s Church Sunday 2nd March, honouring the hard work, creativity and innovativeness of 121 events, performing over 700 shows in 45 different Wellington venues.

The very popular Contact Energy #Fringefave Award of $5000 was awarded to Miss Fletcher Sings the Blues, chosen by the people after voting was open to the public during the festival.

The NZ Fringe team acknowledges our amazing participants, honours our adventurous sponsors, and warmly thanks our kick ass audiences for joining us in another great year.
