The Talisman Fringe performs on the first Thursday of the month at the Holiday Inn, Kenilworth.

Come and join our talented Talisman members and local performers. Enjoy a fusion of light-hearted entertainment from short plays, improv, local bands and singers which always promises an enjoyable evening. 

Launched in 2022 these events have proven to be very popular in providing experienced and new directors the opportunity to explore some alternative plays as well as showcasing local emerging talent as well as established performers. 

All acts are performed at 7:30pm and then repeated again at 9pm. The 7:30pm performance is always very popular so prior booking is advised for the earlier session to guarantee a seat. You can just walk in and pay on the door, but if we are at capacity for the earlier slot you may need to grab yourself a drink from the bar and join us later at 9pm!

The Talisman Fringe performs every month aside from our winter and summer breaks in January and July.

See below for the latest information and dates so you can come and join in the fun!
