Bunbury Fringe Festival 2020 organisers praise artists, sponsors, and attendees

Community members from around the South-West converged upon the Bunbury CBD for nine days of jam-packed entertainment.

Held from January 31 to February 8, this year's Bunbury Fringe Festival showcased some of Australia's best musicians, artists, live performers, writers, and comedians.

Crowds flocked to the Fringe Hub (located at Lyons Cove) to catch superstar comedians Famous Sharron, Harley Breen, and Steph Tisdel in action.

Supported by Kristy Webeck, Gold Logie winner Tom Gleeson (Hard Chat) brought his new show - Lighten Up - to the Rose Hotel.

Harry James Angus (Cat Empire) and his band headlined a 'Whiskey and Blues' event at the Fringe Hub, February 6.

Bunbury Fringe artistic director Jo O'Dea gave thanks to all the attendees, performers, volunteers, and sponsors.

"This year's festival certainly stepped it up a notch. We saw at least a 20 per cent rise in ticket sales and a 50 per cent uptake in our 'Fringe Buddies' program," she said.

"We have been receiving a lot of positive feedback. In particular, the feedback from the artists has been incredible.

"It's all definitely heading in the right direction."

Ms O'Dea said the committee has already launched into discussions regarding next year's festival.
