During the festival Brighton’s New Road and the Pavilion Gardens become a hub of activity. Fringe City is Brighton Fringe’s street festival that takes place every weekend on New Road. There are several stage areas with performances from 12pm to 5pm, and it’s completely free! Fringe City also hosts one late night celebration showcasing the very best of the year’s line-up.
