Fringe Festival

The Fringe Festival is an exciting new event for congress, celebrating the diverse range of music and creative arts groups we have around our territory. 

Think ‘Edinburgh Fringe meets The Salvation Army’.

Congress Fringe Festival

Earlier in the year the congress team sent out an open invitation via Salvationist, social media and DHQs for any interested acts to send us a video application. The response was amazing.

We’ve put together a diverse programme that we’re really excited about sharing with you.

Each act will have a 30 minute slot on the Fringe Festival stage in the main foyer. It’s a free event so you can dip in and out after each act to experience other elements of congress.
