People we like, people who do something like what we do, people who help us, and people who could help you!
The biggest and best other Fringe in England (there is that one in Scotland you may have heard of) is in Brighton in May. Look at their site here.
One of our favourite festivals in the whole world happens every year in Chalon-sur-Saône, France.
It's best for street performance and outdoor theatre, very odd things happen in tents and bars too, and there are great bands as well.
Check out www.chalondanslarue.com before July.
Another very ace street festival with lots of Bath connections:
Artisti In Piazza, Pennabilli, Italy www.artistiinpiazza.com
The compiler of this site is also a great fan of and regular performer at Ferrara Buskers Festival (also in Italy)
