Immerse yourself in Brighton Fringe
It is on Twitter that I often find myself throughout the day ‘hearing’ the most up-to-date reviews, previews and general musings about Brighton Fringe events. For example, on Monday morning I had heard that White Rabbit, Red Rabbit received a 5* review on Fringe Review – I retweeted this, and shortly after had a journalist contact me for tickets to see the show!
I love how instant and direct twitter is, and believe that it is a fantastic way for us, as a festival, to connect directly with our participants, audience and press. It is a great way to form a community.
Twitter can also be surprisingly uplifting – on Saturday I was hearing how well our free event, Fringe City, was going on New Road – despite the rain, people were out enjoying the performances – and I strongly urge you all to come along to the next on Saturday 12 May – if not before.
Brighton Fringe’s twitter feed is not only a-buzz in May, throughout the year we are connecting with new audiences and new participants and, although you think following someone might be a tad stalkerish, I have had comedians and theatre groups telling me that they plan to come to be a part of Brighton Fringe next year on the back of a tweet.
So, I urge you all to get on twitter, follow @brightonfringe and tweet to our participants and friends – ask for suggestions of shows to see, (or shows to miss), venues to check out and people to meet – join our community and immerse yourself in Brighton Fringe.Tagged in: Brighton Fringe, music
