There will be a further release of tickets on 31 January 2022, and the full programme will be released on 1 March 2022.

Julian Caddy, Brighton Fringe CEO, says: “Despite all the uncertainty around Covid at the moment, we have been overwhelmed with the response from artists wanting to take part in Brighton Fringe in 2022.  With this first release of tickets only slightly falling shy of pre-pandemic levels, we are really excited at the prospects for the coming year.”
