About Swindon Fringe Festival
Madam Renards have been running the Swindon Mini Fringe Festival from 2012 - 2019. In 2016, with over 50 applications to the Mini Fringe, they had to upgrade, find 8 different venues and spread the Swindon Fringe Festival over 10 days. Madam Renards brings in companies as far reaching as Brazil to join an army of acts from all over the UK. There are plenty of local favourites too taking part in an extravaganza of Comedy, Drama and Music.
Madam Renards wants give Swindon audiences an opportunity to see something dazzling and new without having to leave their town. They also always give back to the performers by offering no sign up fees, and giving them 85% of any profit made on the festival. The Swindon Fringe Festival has a unique formula by pairing acts together each evening giving audiences a change to see as much of a mixture of performing arts as possible.
The Swindon Fringe Festival is run by a group of dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly every year to put on a bigger and better Swinge than ever before. There are just 6 of us, all working on the festival in our spare time to create an authentic Fringe experience right here in our very own back yard.
