Celebrating local arts at the Sidcup Fringe

James Brokenshire has welcomed news of the upcoming Sidcup Fringe festival, bringing together the best performing talent from amongst our local community and celebrating the success of our local performing arts institutions.

The Sidcup Fringe capitalises on the important collaboration between Rose Bruford College of Performing Arts and Bird College, who are coming together to offer a range of theatrical and musical performances across Friday 16 June and Saturday 17 June. The event features a number of workshops throughout the day, with food, drink and performance bringing Sidcup alive from 2pm until 10pm.

Performances and workshops will take place at Manor House in Sidcup until 6pm, with the action moving to performance spaces at Bird College’s new, purpose-built premises and Rose Bruford.

Commenting James said:

“The first Sidcup Fringe event is a fantastic new addition to our community’s cultural calendar. Our town boasts two of the best performing arts teaching institutions in the country and it is fantastic to see their influence bringing colour and vibrancy to our area.”

“I am keen to see the impact of our local performing arts colleges on Sidcup grow and look forward to working with college leaders, students and local businesses to harness the outstanding performance talent that exists right on our doorstep.”
