Fringe Events

You can book a place in advance at any of our other fringe events and it will also be possible to sign up on the day if there are places remaining. There is a small charge for these to cover the costs of running the event. To sign up for a fringe event you need to have your original booking reference - the booking process is only available to valid ticket holders. Please make sure you turn up at the correct time as unclaimed places will be promptly released to anyone waiting.

As always we are putting together an exciting selection of events for our fringe sessions - this year is looking like the best ever! We're just starting to list them here so watch out for more coming soon...

Thursday Evening sees the first Fringe event and it is free for all attendees at that session. The B63 Brewshed will be coming along with their Grainfather brewing system and will be brewing live on the day. If you're interested in the brewing process itself, or want to find out more about the equipment itself, why not come and have a chat with the guys and watch the brew happen before your eyes while you enjoy a beer from one of our bars.

The perfect match of beer and food has always featured on the Bash fringe and this year is no exception. Our fringe highlight this time is a fantastic Saturday morning Brunch session hosted by Annabel Smith of Dea Latis, featuring beers from three fantastic female brewers - Offbeat, Boss and Sacre Brew - and food by Peel & Stone. Tickets for this are available as part of our main ticket offering on Eventbrite and include admission to the (sold out) Saturday Early session but if you're interested and already have a Saturday ticket we can arrange an upgrade so contact us if you want to do this.
