Fundraising is underway for this year’s festival on June 23-26.

Barnstaple Fringe TheatreFest is gearing up for what organisers hope will be a bumper 10th festival.

Applications by theatre companies and performers to take part are now coming in and the draw to decide this year’s line-up will take place at the Queen’s Theatre Gallery Bar on Saturday, January 23 at 2.30pm.

The festival runs from June 23-26 and will feature around 100 performances by 35 theatre companies at venues around the town.

Organisers Gill Nathanson and Bill Buffery are also appealing for help to raise £2,000 to stage this year’s event.
