Fringe Festival Praha

27th May - 4th June 2011

We'd like to invite audiences from across the world, old friends and new, to come and join us for the 10th birthday of, 'the famous Edinburgh Festival's naughty grandchild' (Prague Post 2009)! With 9 days of comedy, theatre, music and dance across 9 venues in the beautiful Mala Strana area of the city, showcasing the work of companies from across the world …and rightly known for its fun, friendly, intimate atmosphere and the inclusion of our audiences in all the festival action what’s not to love?

Visitors to this site can find useful links for travel to and in Prague, guides to what's on offer in the city, accommodation and living costs, archives and images of festivals past, press information, links to other events and festivals and easy links to our friends at Expats.cz and Prague Post.

Over the past 10 years Fringe Festival Praha has hosted works by local, national and many international companies who fly in annually for the event – established companies say we are one of the most intimate and performer friendly festivals they’ve been to, new companies say it’s a great place to showcase their work. Most shows are very visual, some are in English, some in Czech, most last for an hour, all are designed to entertain, delight and maybe even challenge. Music plays a great part in the event. With fringe you just don’t know what to expect and that’s the beauty of the beast! Each year varies; we’ve hosted many shows that have gone on to be award winners at some of our 60 or so brother and sister fringe festivals across the world while some are designed specifically for our event – if you don’t catch it here, you’ll miss your chance! Every year is different and every year its you that makes the event what it is. Whether artist, company member, audience member, technician, sponsor, volunteer, critic, friend, …start making your plans for May/June 2011.
