Each year we invite a wide range of Arts Industry Professionals to attend Brighton Fringe, in the hope that they will help our participants further their careers and take their work to new audiences.

The Arts Industry Professionals who are invited include:

UK and International Venues
UK and International Festivals
Tour Bookers
Rural Touring Networks
Freelance Producers and Directors
Local Authority Arts Officers

In 2015, over 120 people were accredited, and they booked 509 tickets to 197 events. This led to many events receiving further tour dates, including Internationally. 


Accreditation is open to anyone working with the arts. Accreditation is free, and only takes a few minutes to complete through an online form.

Fill out the accreditation form
