We’re delighted to hear the news about Fringe by the Sea, which returns in a new capacity this year ahead of a planned full return in 2021.
Make sure you pop along to visit the art, film and photography installations on our High Street, as we look forward to more Speigeltent buzz in our town, hopefully, in 2021!
The organisers of Fringe by the Sea said: “We are running a few pieces of activity over the dates the festival would have been on, including celebrating the fantastic pieces of artwork submitted by East Lothian primary school pupils just before lockdown in our programme design competition. A huge well done to Longniddry Primary pupil Harry King whose bright lighthouse design will feature on the 2021 cover.
“Harry’s and four others’ shortlisted entries will also be showcased on posters around North Berwick over the next ten days as part of a initiative encouraging people to support local shops. Anyone who spends over £10 in participating stores (listed at www.fringebythesea.com) can enter a prize draw to win a £300 FBTS VIP Package for 2021. We’ll be linking in with Visit Scotland’s #HameTownTourist campaign in promoting this, inspiring consumers to rediscover their local area.
“A further visual reminder of FBTS can be found at the east end of the High Street where local designer Michael James Lewis and artist/filmmaker Holger Mohaupt have created a Spiegeltent-inspired pop-up photography installation featuring images from the festival over the years.
“If you’re around North Berwick between now and Sunday 16th, please do take a look. We’ll also be posting updates on our social channels.”
