Fringe Week Offers

Since its inception, the Festival has been committed to supporting Durham City businesses out of university term time, in the last week of July. 

In partnership with Durham BID, we’ve been working with a growing number of restaurants, cafes and hospitality businesses to develop a “Fringe Week” – great value offers for our festival goers, and artists and performers, and a perfect way to help audiences really make a day and a night of it. Please note – terms and conditions do apply – if in doubt, please contact individual businesses for further details. 

If you’re a Durham City business, and would like to profile a Fringe Week offer on this page, please contact our Festival Manager Sally Dixon on [email protected]
