Guildford Fringe Festival is five years old this year – and just half way through its run of varied, provocative and hilarious performances taking place across Guildford this July.

On Friday (july 14) I was lucky enough to see The Artist’s Muse and Other Tales, a heel-clacking, finger-clicking night of flamenco, with dashes of Shakespeare, music and ballet thrown in.

Confusing? Perhaps – but that’s the joy of Fringe. If you don’t like one thing, you can try something completely different the following night.

Still to come at a pub, theatre or restaurant in Guildford – to name a few – comedy shows (Josh Pugh, Juliette Burton); singing (Academix A Cappella, a five piece a cappella band based in Woking); and theatre (Bethnal Green, a play about the Bethnal Green air-raid shelter disaster in 1943).

G Live is joining in with The Staff Room, a play about what really goes on in our children’s schools, on July 24; international cabaret star Amber Topaz the same night; and Let’s Face the Music with Godalming Theatre Group on July 25.

This is Fringe, in all its infinite variety, and we are lucky to have so many original, innovative productions on our doorstep for the next two weeks. Embrace it, support it – and try something new.
