I have added this as a comment to the main article but just to make it more obvious, I’ll add this post.
Full instructions on applying for Free Festival shows are on the Free Festival website. The application process starts roughly in January and carries on through to final deadline for the fringe programme in April.
My understanding from reading an advert on chortle is that applications are open from November for PBH’s Free Fringe.
Please note that the Free Festival and PBH’s Free Fringe are two different organisations and that Mr Buckley-Hill has previously made his views very clear about parties who apply to do shows with both organisations.
