Brighton Fringe Bursary

Every year, we offer a bursary to a company bringing their work to Brighton Fringe. The award is open to any artist or company whose Brighton Fringe show includes movement, dance and/or choreography but you don’t need to be a dance artist or company to apply. Your show could be cabaret, circus, burlesque, or physical theatre.

The bursary covers entry fee for Brighton Fringe, Artist Advisory mentoring sessions with the South East Dance team, and in-kind marketing, press and social media support for your show. Applications to The Brighton Fringe Bursary are advertised and operated via Brighton Fringe. Find out more about the 2024 Bursary.
