The team behind the Haslemere Fringe Festival have announced an exciting new series of live events promoting local emerging and original talent.

The Haslemere Fringe Sessions will take place at the Shottermill Club on the first Saturday of each month, with the first event scheduled for 5 February at 19.00.

The evening will include performances by live bands: Subsetters, Face the Wolves, Sour Kix and Eloise Carter of 30 Degree Cycle, followed by a DJ set until 1am.

The venue is ideally located close to Lion Green (the site of the main Haslemere Fringe Festival), and just a 15-minute walk from Haslemere Train Station.

To ensure that the events are accessible to all, tickets will be sold on the door at the very reasonable price of £5, with a discounted rate of £3 for club members.

Shottermill Club chairman Dave Marden said, “We’re delighted to be able to provide a venue and partner with the Haslemere Fringe team. Although many people don’t realise it, our social club is open to anyone who wants to become a member, including families and people from all age groups. We’re looking forward to welcoming some new faces as well as hearing some fantastic live music.”

Fringe organiser Paul Ashton said, “The Fringe Sessions will offer audiences a taster of the main Fringe Festival on 1-3 July, but more significantly they’ll provide a performance platform for the wide variety of local talent that we’re fortunate to have in the Haslemere area.”



The Haslemere Fringe is a registered charity celebrating music, comedy, dance and poetry and promoting local musicians and artistic talent.  A team of Fringe volunteers support and host a variety of local events and artistic initiatives including the bi-annual Haslemere Fringe Festival on Lion Green in Haslemere.
