Fringe Festival Praha 2012

Friday 1st June to Saturday 9th June, 2012

Summer/Autumn update

Fringe Festival Praha 'The famous Edinburgh Festival's naughty grandchild' (Prague Post 2009) has welcomed over 600 companies and 1000s of theatre goers to the heart of the city from all over the world since its inception in 2001. Rightly known for its fun, friendly, intimate atmosphere embraced by audiences and performers alike this boutique event - 9 evenings of comedy, theatre and music in unique venues throughout beautiful Malá Strana - offers something to suit every taste. We are an international festival based in the Czech capital, presenting shows from all over the world (previously UK, Japan, Norway, USA, Holland, France, Serbia, Ireland, India, Canada and Italy as well as Czech Republic); most are very visual and last for 45-60 minutes. This means you can see several shows over the course of an evening, and then join us after the shows for merry making into the early hours with your days being free to enjoy the city. We are currently in the process of planning for the 11th festival in 2012 and would love you to join us!

Planning a trip to the Fringe Festival Praha in 2012? The city and Fringe are a great holiday option!

There are many budget airlines which fly to Prague and now is the time to get booking for a great deal on flights - we also have a range of accommodation partners on hand to offer you a room or apartment to suit your needs. We have created a useful information section on our website for your visit to Prague - if you use any of our tips in or out of festival time, please mention our name!
