Celebrate new and emerging talent

We’re looking to celebrate new and emerging talent right on our doorstep here in Lytham St Annes with our first ever Lowther Fringe Festival.

Whether your taking a production up to Edinburgh Fringe or looking for a space to try out a new piece of work then look no further. 

From Sunday 30 July to Friday 4 August, we’ll be presenting a variety of shows as part of our first ever Lowther Fringe Festival and there’s still time for you to get involved.  

Our professional venue with over 100-years of history includes a 450-seated main auditorium and a 100-seat outdoor marquee positioned in our beautiful Edwardian gardens.  

Performances can be:

  • Theatre
  • Musical
  • comedy
  • Poetry 
  • Spoken Word
  • Variety

What you can expect from us

With this being a new venture for us, we’re wanting to provide as much support to groups and individuals interested in bringing their performances to us. What we mean by this is that there will be no costs to hiring the space as part of the festival and we will also provide technical and marketing support.

Of course, to get the biggest audience we can for your show, we ask that you also promote your show via your own networks.

For the festival, all tickets for shows will be sold in advance through our website and box office system, Spektrix. The URL for your show will be provided for you to share. 

We will also be producing a programme brochure listing all the shows as part of the festival. This will be made available as a printed and digital programme. We would need all your show information for inclusion in the printed brochure by Monday 26 June.
