The programme runs from the 8th to the 24th of May this year and we hear it’s going to be a blinder.
So do you want to be part of an award winning festival and have a show, exhibition, act, set or just an idea you’d love to try out? Have you written a play or your first smash hit novel and would love to find the right platform to test it out before taking further? The team at Southside Fringe would love to hear from you.
Each year alongside the tried and tested sell out shows, the team hopes to attract the experimental, the unseen, the next big thing. From fashion shows in swimming pools, dog shows for dogs, drag story times to mind bending magicians you’d be joining a well established performance platform with a reputation for quality and variety and which reflects the communities the festival was born from. Not only is the Southside the most ethnically diverse area in Scotland but did you know that we also have a high concentration of talent and successful small businesses in the area? You can find the current list of Registered Southside Fringe Venues here. AND if you’re a venue, from Govan to Giffnock, anywhere South of The Clyde, with your own events or interested in hosting an event in a venue not currently listed then please get in touch with the Southside Fringe team - firstname.lastname@example.org

For the second year, on Saturday 9th of May, Southside Fringe Festival will officially launch with the Southside Fiesta - a community procession through Shawlands finishing at the new square at Langside Hall where there will be a jam packed event running from midday - 8pm. This year’s theme is Visit Scotland’s theme of ‘Coasts and Waters’. Specifically, we’re looking at the coast and waters our city’s been built upon, from shipbuilding in Govan, to the Pollok Saw Mill powered by the River Cart, the seas which have carried many valued migrants who call the South of Glasgow their home, to our boating ponds and the folklore of kelpies and mermaids. Let your imagination wash over you and we can’t wait to see what watery wonders you wonderful Southside Community come up with. Let's fill the streets with colour and Southside love! You can find out more and register your interest on their website.
Southside Fringe now runs year-round with our community hub, On The Fringe, that is available to hire for your next event, workshop or meeting. Get in touch with the team today to find out more about using the space. They are also about to launch year-round promotional activities that may be of interest to businesses and groups in the Southside but also those further afield.
