Drinks & Reception
Drinks before the awards are available from the theatre’s bars at their normal prices. There is a reception in the theatre after the awards, and all attending the awards are invited. The reception is free, and includes red and white wine, orange juice and water, and light food. If you’d like other soft or alcoholic drinks these can be bought from the theatre bars at normal prices. The reception can only happen because of  the generosity of donors whom we thank.

* Usually on awards night in early February in London there is heavy snow or torrential rain.
* Please don’t ask for an invitation if very heavy rain and snow means you will not come at the last minute, or will not be able to get home.
* Bring an umbrella.

Fringe Report Awards – Nominate Now!

Tuesday, 30 November, 2010

What better way to contemplate the season of goodwill than by thinking of all those performers, technicians, comedians and other fringe participants who have given you a particular thrill during the year. Then, when you’ve pencilled them into your final list (watch out for mince-pie stains and that you don’t spill the mulled wine), you can send them off to Fringe Report as your individual nominations for a Fringe Report Award.

The FR Awards are one of the few ways that the achievements of Fringe performers are ever recognised, and of course the night itself is also the excuse for a big party too.

You don’t have to think about categories or specific types of performance either – if you know a fireating sword-swallower whose act has gone down a storm, then let us know. Just tell us a bit about why you think your nominee should be receiving some special recognition. Click this link for more.

Party Night! The Fringe Report Awards

And of course if you’re a PR person looking after a youth brand or a charity that’s looking to recognise and reward the special demands of Fringe performance, then let us know too. We’ll show you how you can get involved for an outlay that makes sense to your situation.

In either case (to nominate someone or donate or sponsor an award or the party!) please get in touch with John. Nominations to; you can email him at or you can click this link for more information. We’d love to hear from you!
