The Forest has announced the first plans for its final Fringe in Bristo Place, filling the building’s three floors with free performances for world class acts and local talent.

Highlights include the award-winning Forest Fringe, performances from the Free Belarus Theatre, international poetry stars, plus sights and sounds from around the world.
