Tickets to England’s biggest arts festival go on sale this week, with over 450 events due to be staged across the city.

Around half a million people attended last year’s Brighton Fringe festival, which sees performances from side-splitting comedy to gripping drama stages in theatres, pubs and unusual places across the city.

Organisers for this year’s events urge people to ‘Find Your Fringe’, with events listed under headings such as ‘Find Your Funny’ and ‘Find Your Weird’ to encourage audiences to explore the programme of events in a new way.

The majority of Brighton Fringe events will go on sale on Friday, February 16, which also include spectacular dance, incredible music and guided walks exploring the city.

This year’s Brighton Fringe festival will run from May 3 to June 2, with more information about the range of performances available at
