The Great Yorkshire Fringe will take place between the 18th and 28th July 2019 and will see the historic city of York's well known thoroughfare transformed into a vibrant and exciting central festival hub. To celebrate our 5th birthday we will be spreading out across the city into even more cultural venues with our eclectic mix of comedy, music, theatre, cabaret and family friendly fun.
The Dark Room (For Kids!)

WINNER: BEST KIDS SHOW Leicester Comedy Festival 2018
You and your family are stuck inside a live-action video game! How will you escape?!
Pick options off the screen in this hilarious text-based, interactive adventure game, and try to escape THE DARK ROOM.
It’s funny for the adults, funny for the kids and doesn’t patronize anyone. Will you:
A) Find Light Switch?
B) Go North?
C) Explode in a shower of stinking guts?
Join us for a bonkers family game show with a grumpy host. Featuring challenges, trouble, real(ly) terrible prizes and jokes about Fortnite.
Can YOU escape the Dark Room?
(This bit is for parents only: This show is recommended for 11+ but younger kids are welcome, too. There may be some mild language but it’s more like Roald Dahl than YouTube.)
