workshops or exhibitions over 3 weeks.

Colleagues from our key partners B Arts, YMCA North Staffs and Cultural Sisters and our University Quarter partners: Stoke on Trent Sixth Form College, Staffs Police and Stoke on Trent City Council, were heavily involved in planning and delivery of activities.
The Fringe team supported 16 community partners, with activities, publicity and involving them in Fringe events, showcasing the best of community projects and arts in Stoke-on-Trent.
