Fringe Festival Brings 130 Shows to Wellington


For the last 28 years, Wellington's Fringe Festival has played host to a bevy of fresh, up and coming talents and provided a playground for established artists, not only from New Zealand, but around the World, to perform exciting new works from all mediums including Theatre, Music and Visual Arts.

Of course 2018 is no exception.

Last night the Fringe Team, alongside His Worship Mayor Justin Lester launched next year's chocker block programme and welcomed over 130 extraordinary shows to Wellington City. Proving the Fringe Festival truly has something for everyone.

“Every year the New Zealand Fringe Festival grows from strength to strength. Wellington is rife with creativity and we’re attracting talent from all over the globe to our city of festivals, Fringe is stoked to be at the centre and all around the edges of it.”

Tickets for all shows are now available on line at www.fringe.co.nz
