The Pump House Theatre and Arts Centre is a charitable community theatre entertaining Watford for over 44 years...
Three years ago, this quirky community theatre spotted that there were not enough opportunities to show off the amazing local talent so we thought, “Lets do a Watford Fringe!”. Three years later it is going from strength to strength and this year there will be over 60 acts in 11 venues spaces across Watford Town Centre.
With so much going on at the Pump House you would think there wasn’t any time for anything else, but this year the Watford Fringe Festival 2019 (WatFringe) is bigger and better than ever. Forming part of the Cultural Strategy for Watford The Pump House has established themselves as the Hub for Emerging talent and The WatFringe is an essential part of that process. For the WatFringe they are opening up their three spaces, but they have also teamed up with, Watford Museum, The Watford Palace Theatre (three spaces), The One Crown, The LP Café, The Hidden Bar and The D20 Board Game Café. These venues are all brilliant to be part of the third WatFringe Festival and their fantastic spaces will be able to provide a real “Fringe” atmosphere. With Watford Borough Council supporting the publicity we are ready and now just need, you, the public to come along to enjoy the wide range of performances.
No Fringe would be complete without an amazing line up. There are several award winning 5 star reviewed plays fresh from Edinburgh, Brighton and Camden Fringe Festivals; Musical Plays; Comedians; Jazz; Folk; Indie Music; Rock Music; Musical Theatre; Belly Dancing; Workshops; Henna; An Orchestra; Poetry; Musicians; Children’s acts; magicians; Art; Khatak Dancing; Choirs; DJ’s, new writing and much, much more. There will also be food, drink and of course a warm welcome.
As well as the fabulous acts and venues this wonderful vibrant Festival, is run 90% by dedicated volunteers, which makes this Watford Fringe Festival so friendly and special.
