Become a Volunteer Festival Assistant
at the 2023 Fringe

Festival Assistants are the heartbeat of the festival and hold an essential role in ensuring the Front-of-House operations of each venue run like clockwork and that the festival is successfully promoted across the city.

Festival Assistants work across a variety of venues from the afternoon until late evening and take it in turns to see the various performances whilst on duty. We are looking for adventurous, energetic, creative, organised and responsible people to be the faces of the Fringe, as venue staff and on street team, to promote the festival, manage venues, sell tickets and money handling, deliver top customer service, assist visiting companies from around the globe.

For more info on what's involved and how to apply check out the info on our website here.

A reminder of how our fundraising appeal started:

A note from the Director (5.9.2022 newsletter):

It has been in incredibly challenging two years for all of us.

For us here at Prague Fringe too.

Bluntly put, the 21st year of Prague Fringe may well be the last.

We have worked hard over the last two decades to bring a quality, fun event to you which had blossomed into an extremely well attended, globally recognised and highly praised festival both here in the Czech republic as well as across the world. We carried on bravely during the pandemic and created some unique events - the Fringe hug from near and far was palpable.

Our upcoming September Fringe will be an exciting and vibrant one, with a multi award-winning programme we expect sales will be strong. Going forward into 2023 is the challenge. With the loss of a major partner at the start of the year it shook the foundations of the organisation quite significantly.

We are urging our biggest fans (that's you!) to consider becoming Friends, Best Friends, or Fringe Angels to help us keep our Fringe alive and carry forward into 2023.

Best regards and long live Fringe!

Steve Gove
