It will be followed by an abbreviated committee meeting with newcomers welcome to stay and see how the Fringe works before deciding whether they want to join the committee.

The 2023 Fringe showcased 192 entries, up from 171 the year before, and was widely praised for its high-quality entries in every category from theatre to music and comedy to spoken word. 2024’s dates have been announced as July 3-21 with the Fringe website open for entries from December 1.

Fringe chair Stephen Walker comments: "This is a great opportunity for Fringe fans to find out what makes the Fringe tick and to get involved if they want to. The Fringe is sustained by fresh ideas so we welcome all and encourage anyone, especially those who might feel underrepresented in the Fringe, to join us and help it to develop and stay relevant.”
