The forthcoming Architecture Fringe will take place in June 2019. 

The very first Architecture Fringe opened on Friday 1st July 2016. The 2017 programme hosted work from around 260 contributors over 50 projects in 37 venues. The 2018 programme saw the range and geographical spread of events grow even further. Over the three years the programme has included new artistic work, events, exhibitions, talks, environmental installations, community self-builds and a summer school.
