IMPORTANT UPDATE (13th May 2020)

We are sad to announce that Fringe by the Sea will be unable to take place in August 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The First Minister’s indications are that events will be unable to take place for some months and we therefore we feel we have no choice but to postpone this year’s festival.  While we could take the decision to cancel later, we feel it is in everyone’s best interests to make it now.

The good news is that we have been working with the acts announced so far with the aim of rescheduling their performances for next year’s Fringe by the Sea, which will take place between August 6th and 15th 2021. Save the dates!

Tickets purchased for events at FBTS 2020 will automatically be valid for the 2021 festival.

If you have bought a ticket for FBTS 2020, you will receive an email from our ticketing partner Citizen Ticket with details of the new date of each event in 2021. Although the majority of new dates are already confirmed, please bear with us as we work to finalise details for each act.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to each and every one of our ticket buyers as well as our sponsors, partners, volunteers, performers and Friends of Fringe by the Sea for your continued support of our not-for-profit festival, which means so much to so many in our community.

We look forward to seeing you all next year in North Berwick, and making FBTS 2021 the best yet.

With best wishes,

The Fringe by the Sea Team
