Brighton Fringe Festival runs from the 3rd of May to the 2nd of June 2019. Once again we have a full programme of Fringe shows for you at The Secret Comedy Club: Fringe Comedy Hub. From taster preview nights where you can see 10 to 15 min previews of Fringe shows to full 1 hour performances of comedy, music and theater, we have something for everyone at Artista this May for the Festival! You can find us at Artista, 42 Waterloo Street BN31AY. Most tickets to our events cost only £5.
Who are we?
Artista is a versatile arts cafe/bar located just one minute from Hove seafront and a 5 minute walk from the i360 in the heart of Brighton & Hove. A small independent venue with a varied programme of events including art exhibitions, live music, theater, poetry, storytelling & comedy. Audience participation is always welcome & encouraged. This is a space for creative spontaneity!
What is the Fringe?
During May, the Fringe welcomes international performers and audiences as it showcases the creative heart and soul of the city and its unique cultural heritage. This vast celebration of the weird, wild and wonderful has grown out of, and is inspired by, home-grown talent. more than 30% of events are put on by artistic companies based in Brighton & Hove.
Committed to helping the arts flourish. the Fringe is completely open-access, which means anyone can register and put on a Fringe event as no selection criteria is imposed on participants. This enables both new and established performers to take risks and entertain audiences. We also help artists develop professionally through a range of year-round workshops, mentoring and bursary programmes.

What do we do?
We have a cozy cafe-bar with a front-room feel & a performance/event space available for private hire. There is also a third room upstairs that looks like a vintage living room and can be used for anything from rehearsals to parties or music events. It has the best light in the venue so is great for exhibitions.
