Help the Roofgoats!

The most exciting part about Bunbury Fringe is seeing local acts as they develop from season to season. We have watched the Roofgoats, for example, deliver two brilliantly written, expertly performed original works at the 2018 and 2019 Festivals, delighting audiences and winning fans as they go. It is for this reason that we so eagerly anticipate their 2020 show, “Face the Music” - and this time, they’re asking for your help to pull it off.

The Roofgoats are asking the public to aide them in the inspiration for this new work - they’d like you to send in photographs, either of yourself or someone else, and from these they will select faces that spark a story, or a song! All you need to do is complete the form (click on the link below) and wait and see if yours are the snaps that inspire…

Take a Seat Project

We're VERY excited to announce the first of our collaborations as part of Bunbury Fringe 2020!

The "Take a Seat" project with well known South West artist Helena Sahm will encourage our creative community to repurpose a chair pulled from hard rubbish, the shed, or the tip and give it new life and vitality. Whatever your medium, whatever your style, we want to see it unleashed on your chosen throne. These newly snazzy seats will take pride of place around town for Fringe 2020, with 20 selected for exhibition at the Bunbury Regional Art Gallery!

For more information, or to register your interest, please email Helena herself at helena.sahm@gmail.com. We can wait to see what you all create!

Bunbury Fringe on Tour

The Bunbury Fringe team had a whirlwind trip to Adelaide this past week, to catch the end of one of the worlds biggest and best creative events - Adelaide Fringe 2019!

Apart from the beauty and diversity of the city itself, we were in awe at the sheer number of unique venues hosting shows. The streets were literally filled with excitement - largely generated by the incredible calibre of the street performers, who are drawn from all over the world to take part. And what a diverse program to boot - from the kooky and creepy, to the magical and inspiring, it is a veritable smorgasbord of talent and genre! We had a whole lot of fun scouting potential new shows and concepts for Bunbury Fringe 2020, with the intention of following in their footsteps - always better, always more creative, constantly delighting YOU in new ways!

We were also thrilled to be able to spend some time exploring the Adelaide Hills with our friends Luca (Agro the Clown) and Miguel (Collective Primavez) who were in town to stage their own Fringe shows - in such a big world, our creative community helps make connections all over the place. Enjoy some snaps below…

ReDiscover lives on!

There is a brand new artwork adorning the walls of the City of Bunbury as of this week, care of the incredible artistry of Ketones 6000 aka Jerome Davenport, and his pal Mr Christa aka Chris. These international talents have been painting walls by day and enjoying our Fringe Hub by night, both beautifying and enjoying our city. Bunbury Fringe is thrilled to have been able to support this creative venture, in partnership with Six Two Three Zero, the Vukelic Group and the owners of the property - enjoy some photos (below) but make sure you check it out in real life at 24A Victoria Street, Bunbury!

FRINGE ON SALE!

The Fringe line up is all locked up and we are excited to announce our very first tickets are now on sale! We’ve busted a gut keeping some of these acts and events secret, so the team are uttering a HUGE sigh of relief - we can finally share (some!) of the talent heading to Bunbury in February 2019.

First things first! Australian comedic treasure Tim Ferguson, who you might remember from iconic shows like “Don’t Forget Your Toothbrush”, or from his time in the Doug Anthony Allstars alongside fellow funnymen Paul McDermott and Richard Fiddler. Tim still delights audiences all over the world with his cutting wit and observation, and he jests openly about his experiences with MS, which he has battled for thirty years. As he says, wickedly, “I don’t suffer from MS. It suffers me!” Ferguson will be supported by mad cap Melbourne comedian Tomas Ford, in what will be a brilliant night of laughs - book tickets here.

We are also thrilled to finally lift the lid on one of our musical acts - Mojo Juju is tearing up the airwaves with songs from her latest album “Native Tongue”, and racking up ARIA nominations to go along with it. This powerhouse singer, who hails from Melbourne, is not to be missed - and if you’ve not yet heard the name MOJO JUJU you can best believe you will soon! Check out the incredible video for title track “Native Tongue” below, and snap up your seats here.

Stay tuned for more news, as we announce more tickets on sale and more acts who’ll be rocking the Fringe in twenty nineteen
