More great names have been added to the line-up for Friday at the Haslemere Fringe Festival, including indie/pop band, Lottery Winners, who recently sold out the Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms, and are supporting previously announced Brit Pop favourites ‘Sleeper’ both at the Fringe and on their current UK-wide tour.

Born in Salford and raised on romance, Lottery Winners blend momentous guitar pop melodies with a humorous and wistful lyricism. The band has built an extensive and loyal fan-base through consistent touring, earning a reputation for hugely entertaining live shows, and receiving widespread support from BBC6Music, XFM, Virgin and BBC Introducing.

In December 2021, the band charted on the Official Albums Chart Top 100 at number 11 with their third hit album ‘Something To Leave The House For’ which features Frank Turner on the title track and Sleeper on ‘Bad Things’.

Friday night will also feature comedy from, among others, Brighton’s charismatic observational comic Seann Walsh, sketch show favourite Fiona Allen and natural storyteller and QI regular, Cally Beaton.

Festival Coordinator, Paul Ashton says, “With the addition of the brilliant Lottery Winners and our hilarious comedians alongside Sleeper, Friday at the Fringe is shaping up to be a sell-out”.

Other weekend headliners for the 2022 Haslemere Fringe have already been announced as Sophie Ellis-Bextor and The Feeling. More great names will be announced soon, including emerging young talent from across the south of England.
