The Family Area at The Warren is a new purpose built family friendly area on the festival site.

We are keen to bring together a strong community of children's charities, workshops and local business owners to fill The Family Area with play, creative projects and energy.

The Family Area will encompass a beautiful covered play area and a spacious, colourful outdoor space filled with toys and play equipment providing a safe space for children to play freely as well as a space for local businesses to showcase their products and creative workshops.

What is The Warren?

A 'festival-within-a-festival', The Warren is a bustling, beautiful, multi-venue site that pops up every May for the duration of the Brighton Fringe.

Located on the grounds of St Peter's Church in the heart of London Road, The Warren 2016 attracted a footfall of over 100,000 people.

In 2017 we expect to welcome even more customers through the gates as we continue to grow the site with our Festival Bar and Rooftop Bar, four theatre spaces and dedicated Family Area.

With kidfriendly events in the mornings, delicious street food at lunch times and a thriving bar in the evenings, not to mention over 777 performances throughout the month, this Fringe Festival will be our biggest and busiest yet!

Want to get involved?

Our aim is to keep The Warren and The Family Area vibrant and busy.

We are always looking for new and exciting ways to collaborate with local businesses.

If your business would be interested in running a workshop, advertising in our Family Brochure or showcasing your products in The Family Area we would love to hear from you.

We welcome suggestions so if you have an unusual idea that you feel would work in The Family Area, get in touch!
