Getting Started


PLEASE NOTE! This page is only relevant if you have already been accepted as a reviewer for FringeReview.

Welcome aboard!

To get you up and running on FringeReview there are two tasks for you to complete. The first is to get up and running on the FringeReview.

You’ll need to be in touch with the editor for your Fringe Festival or region in order to get a username and password for posting reviews on the main FringeReview site. And you’ll need an email invite to view the master list of shows for review in your area or fringe festival. This is held on a shared document on Google Drive that you’l get automatic access to from the email invite. This shared documents helps us all see who is reviewing what. You will be able to add shows to that list that you want to review, and also check they haven’t already been taken by another reviewer.

We have shared documents for each region or fringe festival we cover. You’ll need an email invite for each one you need access to.

That gets you onto our reviews master list to claim a show or more to review.

Once, you have seen a show, the main task involves posting your reviews, once you have seen a show. This is done on the main FringeReview site here.

For this site you’ll need a different user name and password which you’ll need to agree with the editor ( ).

Once you have that, you find the “login” at the very bottom of the main FringeReview site at

Once you’ve logged in you fill out the ADD A REVIEW form according to our template. We brief all new reviewers on this process, so contact us to arrange a 15 minute briefing.

The form is very easy. Remember to always write your review in Word or Wordpad first so you have a back up. Online posting is always a bit dangerous without a backup first!

Please note:

If your show is NOT recommended or more, please don’t post a review – you’ll  need to contact the group and let them know the show didn’t reach the recommended threshold and then offer the feedback privately, if they want it.

A show or venue should ALWAYS know you are reviewing the show for FringeReview before it goes on the site. We never review a show without the venue/company being informed.
