The Warren

Welcome to The Warren, the iconic pop-up multi-venue that appears during Brighton Fringe.

In 2019 we welcomed over 250 acts and staged a whopping 1100+ shows, comprising of theatre, comedy, circus and more. We have six venues, including our iconic venue The Hat, which, as you may have guessed, is a huge inflatable hat. On top of that we also have a dedicated children’s area.

We don’t only have shows, though. Fancy a drink? Some food? A relaxing environment to hang out with your friends and/or family? Look no further. With four bars, four food providers, a cafe and plenty of outdoor and indoor seating, we have it covered.

We hope to see you at our festival within a festival in Spring 2020.


Otherplace is one of Brighton's biggest production companies.

In January 2015 we moved to our previous venue The Basement from our previous long-established theatre Upstairs at Three and Ten in Steine Street, Kemp Town, winner of Best Comedy Venue in the South East.

We now focus all our efforts on The Warren, our much-loved pop-up festival site at Victoria Gardens.
