VIDEO: Brighton Fringe 2017: Picnic Day

23 May 2017 |

The Brighton Fringe's ever popular Family Picnic Day returns for 2017!

Take in some of the marvellous madness and wonderufl whimsy at this year's Fringe City Family Picnic, a free outdoor event taking place on Saturday 27 May in the Pavilion Gardens. The picnic is a showcase of family friendly shows, plus free fun activities for children of all ages. In 2016, over 100,000 people attended Fringe City during seven fantastic days of performances, installations, sideshows, dance-offs, choirs, cabaret, puppetry, children's workshops, acrobatics and surreal walkabout performers. 2017 is set to be even bigger and better with even more shows, performances, madness and mayhem all packed in from 5 May to 4 June 2017.

We went to Brighton to catch some of the fantastic acts you can expect to catch at this year's event.
