of the Fringe
The Prague Fringe Festival is entering its 19th year. We are very proud of what's been achieved so far - from the very first Fringe back in 2002, to the world-renowned event we enjoy today.
We have developed our Friends of the Fringe scheme to provide you, our followers with some really amazing exclusive benefits and easy ways to show your support from as little as

What do our supporters say?
'One of the highlights of my year' - Mark Matthews, Fringe Angel
Now approaching his third year as a Fringe Angel, Mark generously supports the festival by hosting international members of the Fringe management team in his apartment 'Old Crooked Beams' which is perfectly situated in the heart of the Fringe zone.
"I discovered the Fringe in 2004 and have not looked back since. I have seen some incredibly memorable shows and met some amazing people in my 14 years as a Fringe devotee. Prague fringe has an authenticity and a soul that's hard to match. All the performers are accessible and always up for a chat in the bar or late night party in many cases.
I'm delighted to be able to support the fringe and it really is one of my highlights of the year!"
'We believe in supporting theatre' - Katy and Charlie Bayless, Fringe Angels
Long-term supporters of the Fringe, Katy and Charlie Bayless are based in Oregon, USA, but make the annual pilgrimage to Europe to attend and support the Fringe every year.
Their support has ranged over the years from sponsoring printing costs, to Friends of the Fringe membership.
"We love the Prague Fringe Festival. We are intrigued by live theatre performances. The performers are putting themselves out there with these fantastic personal creations. We have seen music, mime, puppets, comedy and magic on the stages to our great delight. We are animals when we go to the Fringe festival, doing our best to see all the performances we can.
We believe in and enjoy the arts. We believe in supporting theatre. We consider the prices charged a bargain and donating for extra expenses is something we can do."
