Become a Laughing Horse Festival Venue

Experience the benefits of turning your venue into a Fringe venue during the Brighton Fringe, with increased footfall, sales and publicity generated from being part of the Festival.


Laughing Horse Festivals have been running in Brighton since 2006, and has grown to one of the largest parts of the annual arts extravaganza that is the Brighton Fringe.

We are always looking out for venues to add to our existing spaces, whether you are a completely new venue to the Brighton Fringe, an existing venue that would like to become part of the Fringe Festival, or a promoter already running shows that would like your shows included in our programme.

The benefits of running Fringe shows at your venue in Brighton include a large increase in footfall and sales over the festival period, along with a huge increased awareness of your venue and services through the press, publicity and media attention associated with both the Laughing Horse Shows and the Brighton Fringe.

Laughing Horse is a professional organisation who manage and run venues, and produce shows at festivals internationally in Edinburgh, London, Brighton, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and Los Angeles.

We work with venues large and small, in Edinburgh our largest venue has six separate performance spaces and the smallest one - we have single room spaces in Brighton but are keen to expand further, and we successfully run festival venues in bars, private clubs, nightclubs, hotels, arts centres and theatres around the world - and also use other bespoke venues at festivals, including marquees, tents and even a bus or chicken coop.

The main requirment of a venues is there is a seperate room that can be used for shows, that is a room completely seperate from a main bar. Other than that we can discuss the set-up, and how the technical requirements will be met.

If you would like to discuss what Laughing Horse can do for you, please contact Festival director Alex Petty on alex@laughinghorse.co.uk or 07768 584 881.
