Brighton Fringe is back for 2024 with more than 550 events taking place across the city for the festival.

Described as "England’s biggest arts festival" loads of events will be staged in "theatres, pubs and unusual spaces" all over Brighton.

Around half a million people attended last year’s Brighton Fringe festival, with a huge number of people expected for this year's events also.

On its website, it says: "Rather than thinking about which genre of show you fancy watching, this year visitors can go with their mood!

"For 2024, we invite you to Find Your Fringe, with events listed under headings such as Find Your Funny, Find Your Escape or Find Your Weird, inviting audiences to explore the programme in a whole new way."
