Brighton Fringe Awards


A team from IYAF head to Brighton Fringe every year to review shows across three categories – Theatre, Comedy and Children & Families. One winner from each category is invited to perform at IYAF 2019. Past winners have gone onto tour nationally and internationally.

Brighton Fringe 2019 runs from 3 May – 2 June.
