New fringe festival launches in Preston
June 29, 2016
A new performance arts festival showcasing the country’s best live acts will launch in Preston over two days on July 15 and 16.
Lancashire Fringe Festival is a unique showcase for stand-up comedians, improvisation and spoken-word performers.
The free festival, organised by Garry Cook, sees several hit performers from the Edinburgh Fringe festival coming to Preston.
Festival creator Cook said: “The idea is to bring some of the best entertainment and comedy acts in the country to Lancashire – so people can see great performances and comedy on their doorsteps.
“I’ve invited some of the best acts from last year’s Edinburgh Fringe festival to perform, plus several others who are expected to be huge hits this year.”
Lancashire Fringe Festival takes place over two nights on July 15 and 16 at Ham & Jam Coffee Shop on Lancaster Road, Preston.
One of last year’s Edinburgh Fringe biggest hit shows will be headlining the festival.
