The Fringe includes live events, exhibitions, open studio, and other creative performances that feature musicians and artists from Leicester. The Fringe organisers hold the final night which takes place around various venues in the city on Thursday 12th April, a day before the Summer Sundae Weekender begins.


Happening across around 9 venues incorporating live music from the region's finest acts, a comedy venue curated by the Leicester Comedy Festival and a poetry and spoken word venue curated by Phrased and Confused. The Fringe Thursday events are run to raise funds annually for LOROS, the Leicestershire Hospice Charity.
