The TechNExt festival fringe is a diverse and inclusive range of community designed and led events for everyone.

During festival week, TechNExt will support more than 50 events hosted by other organisations taking place across the North East. Organisations are encouraged to host their own independent events and associate them with the fringe programme by completing the form below. Once accepted, each event will be listed within the festival programme and you’ll received TechNExt branding assets to advertise your event.

Events can be of any size and any target audience, so long as they are free of charge and fit within the broad themes listed within the application.

A small amount of funding is available to support organisations or individuals applying to host their own independent events. The team can also assist with finding a venue, speaker and advise on the best time and day to schedule your event based on the wider programme.

If you have a venue space to offer up for free, the TechNExt team would love to hear from you. Please complete the form below.

Please note: the deadline for fringe applications has now closed.
