UK Keep it Fringe fund for artists extended for two years. Building on the inaugural Keep it Fringe fund 2023, this will support artists bringing work to the Fringe in 2024 and 2025.

Edinburgh Fringe have launched the second year of the Keep it Fringe fund, an initiative to support Fringe artists to realise their professional ambitions, originally launched in 2023 by Fringe honorary President Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Applications for the fund will open on at 12:00 on Thursday 11 April 2024. There will be an online information session on Tuesday 09 April for anyone with questions around the fund; a recording of this event, along with some guidance around applying for the fund, will be hosted online.

What is the Keep it Fringe fund?  

The total fund available for 2024 is £450,000, which will be made up of 180 awards of £2,500. The remaining funds will be used to deliver support services for the successful artists through our Artist Services team throughout the year and at festival-time, as well as fees for assessors and the administration.

Bursaries are designed to help artists on their Fringe 2024 journey and can be spent on any costs associated with their show. The Fringe Society will award £2,000 of the fund up front, with a further £500 to support admin and reporting to be paid after the Fringe upon receipt of reporting.

Who is the fund for?  

The fund is for individual artists and companies bringing work to the Fringe in 2024.

Deadline 29th April
