Julian Caddy, Brighton Fringe’s Managing Director, said: “As England’s largest arts festival it feels only right to start with something massive and spectacular from the top of one of Brighton’s most iconic buildings in the centre of town. I’m really pleased to be working with the lovely people at The Warren who are helping make the start of this year’s Brighton Fringe an incredible one.”

Brighton Fringe’s opening night fireworks party will start at 9pm on Friday, May 6 at The Warren.

The event is free but space in Brighton Fringe’s viewing area is limited, so advance booking is essential.
