Over three weeks, the Clapham Fringe hosts a variety of performances including theatre, comedy, storytelling and cabaret.

This year's event will run from 28 September to 15 October 2017 and heralds 26 different productions over 46 performances.

The full line-up and brochure can be found here.

With something for everyone at this growing festival, the Clapham Fringe is a great opportunity to discover and experience an exciting line-up of performances in the vibrant South West London area.

In September 2015 the first Clapham Fringe Festival took place, which featured 18 different productions with 47 performances altogether.

The second festival ran from 20th October to 6th November 2016, with 29 different productions and 48 performances.

The Clapham Fringe was founded, and is currently produced, by Rebecca Pryle and Tessa Hart, the team who also founded and manage The Bread & Roses Theatre.

From 2016 Velenzia Spearpoint has joined the team as an Associate Producer.

The Bread & Roses Theatre is an innovative and award-winning fringe pub theatre, located upstairs at the Bread & Roses Pub in Clapham, and within walking distance of several Tube and Overground stations in London Travel Zone 2.

The 50-seat fringe theatre venue programs a wide-spread variety of productions.

Equality, diversity and artistic quality are at the forefront of the theatre's programming, whilst also providing theatre-makers with a space to develop and present their work on a box office split basis, rather than charging upfront hire fees.
