Nick Wyschna of the Guildford Fringe Theatre Company is the driving force behind the Festival and is creating this year’s event with a view to it being a regular fixture in the Guildford calendar. He intends to increase the number of performance locations in future years. He hopes that the July Guildford Fringe Festival will become a major event where performers preview their work before going on to the Edinburgh Festival in August.
Nick says “I have had such an incredible response since announcing the festival. I knew that Guildford was mad about the arts but I have been overwhelmed by people’s interest and support. Here’s to a great July’s Fringe Festival, and to many, many more.”
