always happy to hear of fringe events, and lists them free-of-charge
at our discretion.
During late 2013, theatremonkey.com is changing to a new listing
system. Please be aware that this means individual listings may be
combined at a later date.
BEFORE READING ON, do please check whether your venue has
already "changed over" on our
fringe page. You will know as instead of text listings, it shows
the venue's website. If you see the venue website rather than text,
no need to send us your details - your listing will appear
If the old text format is still there for your venue, or if the
venue isn't listed at all, please follow the following
rules when submitting a listing:
1) Your event must be
professional, and taking place at a professional venue WITHIN the
LONDON M25 area. Occasionally we list semi-professional companies
and events slightly outside the London area, but this is considered
on a discretionary basis in each individual case. Please note that
certain professional venues may be excluded for operational or other
2) Your listing MUST be in a "cut-and-paste" format. That means
either a 'plain text' email or Word document. If you send a PDF,
please MAKE CERTAIN it can be "cut and copied." Do not 'seal' it as WE CANNOT ACCEPT ANY
LISTING SENT IN ANY NON-COPYABLE FORMAT. Please also note that in particular, just sending
a scanned copy of a publicity leaflet is not accepted, and theatremonkey.com will not list or reply to any company submitting
details in this manner.
3) Any attachments MUST be guaranteed virus-free and MUST be
smaller than 1MB when sent. JPEG, GIF or similar files are
acceptable, but theatremonkey.com reserve the right not to use any
material it cannot access / electronically manipulate easily.
4) A maximum of TWO photographs / title graphics may be submitted
with any listing request. Photographs and graphics MUST conform to
our "no bare flesh" rules. This means that images of an adult
nature, and those containing more than a minimal quantity of skin
exposure cannot be used on the site. The monkey isn't being prudish
- this policy exists for two reasons: a) to conform with our server
host policy and b) to protect the performers concerned. In the past,
some photographs have been reproduced on less savory internet sites
without permission of the person concerned. This has caused problems
to the actor featured, so the monkey rule is in place as a
precaution. If you have doubts about whether your graphic complies with
this rule, please do check with us first.
FINALLY: Please make sure your listing is complete before
you email it to us. In particular we need to know:
a) If it is not already on our
fringe page: the full name and postal address - including postcode - of the
venue. If it is above a pub, please make the pub name clear.
b) The exact dates of performance e.g. Monday 3rd to Friday 12th
c) The exact days of the week of performances. Just telling us it is
on between the 3rd and 9th is NOT sufficient! We need to know if
performances are Monday to Friday / Tuesday to Sunday / Tuesday to
Friday with no Thursday performance etc.
d) Performance Times on each day of the week, e.g. "Monday to Friday
at 7pm, Saturday at 3pm and 8pm" etc.
e) If it is not already on our
fringe page, or is different from that shown there: Box office telephone number / online site for people to buy
f) Ticket prices, including any specific rules about who concessions
g) If it is not already on our
fringe page: Nearest public transport to the venue - underground / mainline
station or bus if no station is nearby.
h) brief details about the production - synopsis of plot, author and
director are sufficient. Biographies of cast and creative team are
not required and are not used online.
TO PREVENT FRAUD, TICKETS MUST ACTUALLY BE ON SALE BEFORE WE CAN LIST YOUR
An incomplete listing will be rejected as theatremonkey.com does
not have facilities to conduct research to supplement incomplete
To send us a listing, email
Provided it conforms to the above rules, your listing will appear as
soon as possible on the Fringe
Theatre page. If your submission has not appeared within
fourteen working days, please check it is complete and conforms to the rules above,
