Following the announcement in late June that the Tramlines festival would be going ahead between Friday 23 and Sunday 25 July at Hillsborough Park, it was quickly followed with the welcome news that The Fringe at Tramlines would run over the same weekend across sites and venues in the city centre.
The Fringe at Tramlines is once again being held in association with Sheffield BID, as part of our commitment to support the city centre and its businesses.
Diane Jarvis, Head of Business Operations at Sheffield BID, believes the return of The Fringe is more excellent news for the city and our businesses.
"The Fringe will once again showcase local creative talent and provide a unique platform to reach a large and captive audience. The Fringe at Tramlines attracts thousands of people and we’re once again looking forward to seeing a vibrant, carnival atmosphere in the city centre.
"We’re proud to play our part in helping to bring yet another fantastic event to the city centre this summer and to fully back the Council’s Summer in The Outdoor City campaign. We would encourage everyone to plan ahead, to make the most of what is sure to be a fantastic weekend and, above all else, to support your city centre businesses."
