Second week – Bath Fringe moves into a new phase!
Bath Fringe, May 24 – June 9 2013.
The Spiegeltent has gone, bedlam fair is over, but Bath Fringe lives on for another weekend of unexpected groovy treats.
Where to start?
Some venues still showing really strongly: Old Theatre Royal has a very wide selection of shows all week and into overdrive at the weekend – including ‘You all know me, I’m Jack Ruby’, whose poster we reproduce above.
Due to a ticketing hiccup [not ours] some OTR shows are showing as ‘Sold Out’ on Bath Box Office; but it’s quite likely they’re not. Assume there will be tickets on the door and we’ll see you there.
Christian the German Comedian and Bill Smarme have both sold out, sorry [smaller venues, see?]
Green Park Tavern is stepping well out of its usual remit with the electronica/americana crossover of Dusty Stray, Pilote and others, Irish folk in excelsis from Tim Edey & Brendan Power, and leading into a great weekend [even featuring Hodmadoddery, sshh] via Producer’s Cut, a live show of new local electronic dance music on Friday.
But there’s the sublimely melodic Carmina at Chapel Arts, Simon Munnery‘s new multimedia work-in-progress Fylm at Komedia [moved from the gutted Banglo] and an Ealing Comedy railway adventure on Thursday.
And that’s all before we hit the weekend. Forgive me if we send you another mail with the final weekend on in a couple of days, there’s still too much to headline. But Friday’s free Circo Clandestino show at Green Park Station will feature Bongo Bolero who so thrilled the crowds [with a different show] at Hoochie Coochie (all that time ago) on the first Saturday of the festival.
We’re selling a very limited number of large format posters [image is approx. A3] of this year’s poster, hand-printed by the artist Alice Graham. We’re splitting the money between the Fringe and her. Some editions are signed, and some feature variations on the colour scheme of the image as you will have seen it – a bit more like we saw originally when we selected it.
We’re thinking of about £20 unframed. If you’re interested, EMail us back, leaving a contact EMail or phone number and we’ll sort it out after the festival…
