Greater Manchester Fringe Festival is now taking applications for its 2016 programme.

The festival, which will run from 1-31 July next year, is looking for new and established writers, artists and performers to participate.

Greater Manchester Fringe is an open-access, grassroots festival that welcomes all art forms and has previously featured – but is not limited to – drama, dance, comedy, music, magic, puppets, poetry, animation, film, visual arts, new writing and book readings.

Registration is £30, and includes a promotional package featuring press releases, photographs and a listing in the full-colour programme distributed throughout Greater Manchester.

The festival first took place in 2013 with six participating performance spaces, and has now expanded to include shows over 10 venues.

Celebrating new, up-coming performers, the festival is run by volunteers, and encourages performers of all levels and genres to take part.
