The festival is maturing and gaining traction – 2021 will be its 6th year and it is an active member of the world fringe movement. It is run entirely by a volunteer board of directors and a handful of volunteers and is now seeking additional assistance in several key areas.

If you are interested in becoming a Fringe volunteer, we require a minimum of 2 to 4 volunteer hours per week. You will also need to become a member of the Newcastle Fringe (it’s free to join).

What We Offer

All our volunteers become part of our Fringe Family. For younger volunteers it’s a chance to gain vital experience in the arts sector.

For more experienced volunteers it’s an opportunity to give back to a sector that has been hard hit by Covid-19. For everyone, it’s just plain good, frenetic fun that culminates in 5 days of Fringe – edgy, diverse, creative, exciting and unique.
