Register for Fringe in the 'Stings 2018

This is an Expression of Interest (EOI) form. Fringe in the 'Stings is small (but mighty) so we'll try and find you a space in the programme. 

Fringe in the 'Stings 2018 will run officially over 11, 12, 13 October in and around the Common Room on Heretaunga St and our other venues (yet to be announced).

If you have an idea for a Fringe project, no matter what or how crazy, jot down some information and submit this form and we'll be in touch to see how it might work at Fringe.

Sponsors, Supporters and fringe BENEFACTORS   

Thanks to our incredible sponsors, supporters and Fringe benefactors in 2017, we couldn't have done this without them! Support us by supporting them. 







About Us

The Fringe in the 'Stings began as all good Fringe Festivals do, over a few drinks with good friends who agreed that Hastings was ripe for a Fringe Festival. 

Not content to sit back and wait, this plucky group decided to make it happen, and The Fringe in the 'Stings was born. 

Fringe in the 'Stings is run on the smell of an oily rag with help from the Hastings City Business Association. Supported by people who are as passionate as we are, in whichever way they can, whether cash, time, skills or stuff. Without them Fringe in the 'Stings would have just been one of those great ideas that disappeared when the hangover arrived. 


Support Fringe in the 'Stings

Fringe in the 'Stings is run on the smell of an oily rag. We beg, borrow and barter to make our festival amazing for artists and audiences each year.

We are supported by people who are as passionate as we are and they help us out in whichever way they can, whether cash, time, skills or stuff.

We also need volunteers, everything from taking tickets to transporting artists. If you want to get involved we'll find a way for you to help. Just fill in the form below and we'll be in touch.
