A new boss for the Brighton Fringe Festival is being sought – a month after the abrupt departure of one of its founding figures.

Nick Stockman, former executive manager, left at the end of September after six years directing the annual arts spectacular.

This week an advert for a festival director, which carries a salary of between £30,000 and £40,000 a year, was posted online.

According Heather James, chairwoman of the Fringe Festival board, the role is “the best job in Brighton”.
