The call out for artists to perform at Newcastle Fringe Festival will be announced here in early February 2024, so please keep an eye on the page. We will be looking for artists across theatre, comedy, music and family. We hope to be able to programme dance and circus this year, depending on confirmation of certain venues.

The venues confirmed to take part in this year's festival so are: Alphabetti Theatre, Prohibition Cabaret Bar, The Cumberland Arms and The Old Coal Yard. Conversations with two other city centre venues are still ongoing, which we hope to announce shortly.

The deal for artists will be a 70/30 split on ticket sales in the artist's favour.

The application process will be to complete a Google Form by a certain deadline. The Google Form asks for:

  • Contact Information

  • Information about the artist/company

  • Information about the show - copy, age range, genre

  • Full recordings or scripts of the work - this help us with programming. If you do not have this material then please provide examples of your previous work.

  • Marketing assets including images and videos

  • Technical specifications if you have them 

  • Venue preference - once all venues are confirmed they will be listed below


We will set a two week application window. Once closed we will shortlist applications and make offers in the following weeks.

If you have any questions or would struggle to access a Google Form please contact Chloe Stott at
