Fringe Friends pay an annual membership fee which provides vital support for the Fringe Society's charitable objectives; in exchange, Friends receive exclusive benefits such as ticket offers, a priority booking line and discounts in the Fringe Shop.

We have several membership tiers to suit different budgets, with a variety of benefits available at each tier – we've outlined these below. Every penny of your Friends membership will help the Fringe Society support artists affected by the pandemic.
