SPOKEN word, mini dramas and creative writing sessions are just some of the events lined up for this year’s Salisbury Fringe Festival.

Now entering its seventh year, Salisbury Fringe is dedicated to celebrating the talents of local writers, while remaining free of charge for the whole community.

The weekend will kick off tomorrow with two dramas written by South West playwrights, Christine Diment and Linda Morse.

The rest of the festival will be filled with professional theatre, bite-sized plays, creative writing pieces inspired by the museum’s latest exhibition, Alchemy, a short story workshop, a special Fringe Scratch, poetry and more.

And in traditional Salisbury Fringe fashion, the weekend will draw to a close with the Monologue Mash - where spectators can vote for their favourite performed monologue.

“Salisbury Fringe is delighted to help showcase Salisbury’s cultural richness and trumpet the talent that lies within the city and its surrounding regions,” says Brian MacReamoinn of the Salisbury Fringe team.

He added: “The festival aims to appeal to the whole community, attracting a wide and diverse audience to all its events, which remain free-of-charge.”

The entertainment will take place in various treasured spots across the city, including Salisbury Museum, Salisbury Art Centre, The Pheasant Inn, Boston Tea Party and Hale Hall.
