If you were worried you had missed your chance to catch a Fringe show sans mask, there’s good news! Although FRINGE WORLD Festival wraps up on February 14, a Fringe Encore season has just been announced and will run for an additional two week until February 28.
This year’s Fringe Festival featured 2,400 artists, and offered over 500 events at more than 100 venues across Perth. In light of mass ticket cancellations due to lockdown restrictions and caps on venue capacities, the encore season allows those who may have missed out to experience the shows.
It also provides artists and performers with another opportunity to bring their shows to audiences. The COVID-19 restrictions have already had a considerable financial impact on Fringe artists, and a Fringe Fund has been set up to help support the artists impacted. So far, more than $80,000 has been raised through donations.
Tickets for the encore season are available from the Fringe World website.
