We’re about 65% of the way through, well into it now, bits deep in Fringe. We’ve seen some things e.g. morph suits, love bombs, mana wāhine, nipples, space, robots, space robots (sprobots?), and a partridge in a pear tree. You’ve still got over a week to get your Fringe fix. Don’t have FOMO. Have FUN! Have FRINGE!

To celebrate that it’s a leap year, we’re going to leap! into the ocean, off the diving board on the Wellington waterfront (weather permitting). So come join the Fringe team and jump into the sea at lunchtime Monday Feb 29.
What a crazy great way to cool down AND celebrate all those unfortunate souls who only get to celebrate a legit birthday every four years!
