Fringe favourite ‘The Warren’ relocates for 2019

Besi Besemar November 26, 2018

Fringe venue The Warren relocates to a new site in central Brighton for May 2019.

THE ‘festival-within-a-festival’ complex is to be sited at Victoria Gardens for the duration of Brighton Fringe 2019, which runs from May 2 – June 2, 2019.

The Warren was formerly located on St Peter’s Church Green, which is currently under development as Brighton and Hove City Council carries out phase II of its Valley Gardens regeneration project.

Otherplace, the Brighton production company that runs the award-winning venue, said the move to a larger site would allow them to present an even better offering for next year’s Brighton Fringe.

Artistic director Nicola Haydn said: “We’re really pleased to have inched closer to the heart of the city. Victoria Gardens offers more space for us to play with and we have some exciting plans in the pipeline that will make The Warren 2019 even bigger, better and more exciting for our audiences. Otherplace has built up a strong following over our 13 years in the city and we’re looking forward to welcoming old friends and new faces as we embark on a new chapter.”

She added that Otherplace was grateful to Brighton and Hove City Council for its assistance in helping the company secure a new site.

The Warren, which marks its eighth year in 2019, is Brighton Fringe’s biggest venue complex. The free-to-enter festival site includes four venues, a festival bar, rooftop bar, coffee shop, food stands and kids’ area. Its variety of high-quality performance and buzzing festival atmosphere has made it one of the most popular destinations on Brighton Fringe.

Tickets for selected shows in its Brighton Fringe 2019 programme will be on sale from December 14.
