Fringe festival Praha 2010

Friday 28th May - Saturday 5th June.

The Prague Fringe 2010: add a sprinkling of contemporary international theatre to your visit to the historic Czech capital.

Full programme on line and tickets on sale from mid April. Come and join the Prague Fringe group on Facebook for updates and event details

Prague’s eagerly awaited annual marathon of theatre, dance, comedy and music from around the globe bursts to life on May 28th for 9 days.

The Prague Fringe Festival, now in it’s 9th year attracts a growing band of visitors from overseas as well as being increasingly popular with Czech audiences. The event creates a great international atmosphere where those on holiday can mix with locals and enjoy an eclectic mix of high quality and reasonably priced non-elitist theatrical entertainment.

This exciting event offers 40 different shows with over 200 performances and is a mini and more manageable version of the mighty world famous Edinburgh Fringe. It’s cheaper too with tickets priced at around a third cheaper than the Edinburgh shows.

All productions are in English, Czech or are non-verbal and are programmed so that you can see up to 5 shows a day or dip in and out as you please. Shows take place from the afternoon to late evening, most last for an hour or so with time between to zip from venue to venue and grab a bite to eat, or even pop back to your hotel for a freshen-up.

’Hot tickets’ this year include Live Theatre, Newcastle’s award winning Playing with my Heart, the cream of Amsterdam Fringe and the Celtic musings of songbirds Andi Neate and Flannah Sheridan. Flannah, The Human Jukebox with her repertoire of over 1000 songs is already creating quite a buzz! There are over 40 shows to choose from at the Prague Fringe Festival. Quirkiness, originality and quality are the order of the day and there is most definitely something for everyone!

The Fringe venues allow visitors to discover the quieter side of the historic centre with the Festival taking place right in the heart of Mala Strana. These unique venues are nestled in between hidden gardens and quiet parks with a leafy village atmosphere just off the beaten tourist track. Indulge your cultural senses in to the early hours at these intimate Fringe spaces which include underground medieval vaults, coffee shops even a beautiful Hussite church on the edge of the fringe circuit.
