Free Day of Fringe Fun on William Street

FRINGE Sunday Funday is one giant, free, family-friendly community event taking over William Street and made possible thanks to FRINGE WORLD’s hero supporter, Lotterywest. 

Three performance spaces will showcase samplers and snippets of FRINGE WORLD 2022 shows, giving a taste-tester of the comedy, circus, dance and cabaret shows on offer during the month long Festival. After the Funday, you can check out a show at one of the many FRINGE WORLD venues that will be open around the city. 

The Funday will be a free-flowing entertainment playground, packed with enough pleasures to suit everyone who joins us. It’s free to attend, and guests will have ample space to enjoy refreshments from our local Northbridge traders, watch roaming free entertainment and check out some show samplers at the various performance stages. If you like the sample on offer, You can jump on the FRINGE WORLD app or head to the box office in the Perth Culture Centre to snap up your tickets and see the full show.

Alfresco dining and cool, shady spots to sit and enjoy the atmosphere will be in plentiful supply so that you can grab a takeaway from one of the many Northbridge restaurants and bars in the area. There will also be roaming artists and performers delighting all who come down for an afternoon of Fringe fun. 

3,000 sqm of pink astro turf will be laid on the road stretching between Roe and Francis St in Northbridge for the Funday, which will start from 1.00pm and continue until 7.00pm.  

Kids of all ages will be delighted with roaming performances, magicians, face painting and massive colouring towers!
