The 2009 Fowey Fringe has almost started

May 14-17

Despite the credit crunch, the ill health of the organiser and the threat of a swine flu pandemic, the Fringe is still going ahead.

The Fowey Chamber of Commerce was very keen for the event to go ahead, and has generously sponsored the event. So too have the Fowey River Gallery and The Ship. Many thanks indeed to them for helping make the event happen.

Check out the Programme for a complete list of what will be happening this year, updated as we sort out the schedule.

We'll be updating this site throughout the Fringe with photos and hopefully videos of some of the events - feel free to email web@foweyfringe.co.uk with any photos or stories you want to share!

Fowey Fringe Festival has returned for 2009

May 14-17

Now in its third year, the Fowey Fringe Festival has established a superb reputation as the very best place to be to see incredible live performance at some of Fowey’s most wonderful locations.

Visit www.FoweyFringe.co.uk for the latest updates, or come during the day or night from 14th to 17th May 2009 and keep your fingers crossed to be in the right place at the right time

Rather than having to buy tickets to see someone perform in a marquee, these events are much more intimate, with performers coming to play the pubs, clubs, hotels and restaurants of Fowey purely for the love of doing so. None of them are paid, relying instead on public generosity.

You might catch an ageing rocker playing an acoustic guitar, or possibly someone playing in public for the very first time. If you are lucky, you will see spontaneous performances of bands who have spent years practicising, possibly being joined by musicians from other bands together making quite unique sounds.

You could well find that your meal at a hotel is added to by a poet reading his or her own poetry. You will almost certainly hear Cornish bagpipes being played, or hear musicians playing as they cross the river on the ferry to perform in Polruan.

As none of the performers are paid, we cannot guarantee a programme. What we suggest is that you visit www.FoweyFringe.co.uk for the latest updates, or come during the day or night from 14th to 17th May 2009 and keep your fingers crossed to be in the right place at the right time.

The following venues are being used this year - The Ship, The Galleon, Town Quay, the Red Herring, Fowey Hotel, The King of Prussia, The Safe Harbour, The Russell Inn in Polruan... and maybe other venues too!
