Galway Fringe Festival, choc-a-bloc with artistic treats

Thu, Jul 02, 2015

THE GALWAY Fringe Festival will launch its programme this Saturday in the Mechanics Institute, Middle Street, at 6pm and the line-up is bursting at the seams with visual arts, music, comedy, theatre, and literature.

This is the fourth year of the festival, which has been going from strength to strength under the stewardship of founder and director, Claire Keegan. “I had lived in Edinburgh for many years and worked with the Edinburgh Fringe and felt a fringe would fit in really well in Galway,” she tells me during a brief lull in her hectic pre-festival schedule. “I took a chance on it and the first year there was a huge response. Part of the attraction is that it is on at the same time as the Galway International Arts Festival. That would mirror arrangements elsewhere, in cities like Edinburgh, Adelaide, and Melbourne, where you have main and fringe festivals running alongside each other. It’s kept going since then and it’s the same board as when we started, so we are well versed now in what works and what doesn’t.”
