Unafraid to challenge the sector

The award-winning Fringe has evolved to become one of Housing’s most popular theatres, building its reputation on sessions that have “strictly no powerpoint, jargon or cliché”.

You can expect inspiring, entertaining and always candid content that is unafraid to tackle hard-hitting issues head on yet in a creative, fun and inclusive environment.

 

This year’s theme is climate emergency, taking inspiration from the camps of Extinction Rebellion. We plan to galvanise the audience, not just on environmental issues, but standing up for change on a range of topics that the sector is passionate about.

 

Come and hear from activists and campaigners, politicians, expert commentators, sector leaders and up-and-coming talent who are shaking up the sector, presenting real solutions to challenges and a hopeful vision for the future.

 

Be part of the change, be part of the Fringe.
