It’s time to say goodbye to boring and hello to Fringe World Festival 2018! There is already a buzz of excitement in the air, as Perth gets ready to treat you to world-class performances from 26th January until 25th February.
Fringe World is one of the most anticipated arts and cultural events on WA’s calendar – and so it should be, considering it’s now the third biggest Fringe Festival in the world with more than 750 shows across 130 venues.
This year some of my favourites are back with new shows, the best venues are at it again, and there are a few new thigs thrown into the mix – like Noodle Palace moving from its iconic spot in Northbridge to Elizabeth Quay; the super fun Ice Cream Factory just down the road from the Pleasure Garden; the Showman’s Fair at the Urban Orchid in Fringe Central (a Dutch mini-festival with live performances and a long-table dining experience); and more hubs and venues opening up around the outer-suburbs to make Fringe even more accessible.
So, where do you even start when it comes to deciding which of the 750 shows to see? With my top picks, of course!
