Free Festival FAQs

You'll find the answers here to the most common question we get asked each year.
Print Company: Can I use someone else?

Laughing Horse prefer all Free Festival shows to order via where the print can be managed for performers, the venues and Laughing horse, with it being guaranteed to arrive where and when you and Laughing Horse need it. 

Ordering from other companies that use random couriers or deliver at random times outside of venue opening hours, and/or who offer no support if print goes missing etc always causes problems and missing print. Remember a lot of venues are not open all day outside of the Fringe to accept deliveries, or are large venues where random deliveries could be put anywhere. 

Artwork: Do you have FREE flyer and poster templates?

We have prepared a full set of Photoshop artwork templates (A3, A5, A6) for each venue, available to download here: FFP TEMPLATES.

Delivery dates: when will my print arrive at my Free Festival venue?

We will deliver your goods to your Free Festival venue week commencing 22nd July 2024. We will notify you when deliveries have been completed.

Distribution: Can you help?

We know just how important flyer distribution is for many fringe shows. We can't do it, but we know just the right people who can! Check out our exclusive distribution partners over at, who are extremely reliable, diligent and super friendly. Contact them and say we sent you! :)

Posters: Do you put them up in my venue?

We don’t put up posters at your venue. Laughing Horse will place general advertising and some posters at venues, and then performers will need to go into venues before the start of the run to place your posters. The day allocated for it this year will be Wednesday 31st July.

I've missed the deadline: What do I do?

It's Ok - it happens. Just order your print from the General Sale section, as we will close the Free Festival print shop on 22nd June. Please do not organise delivery to your venue; you cannot deliver to any Free Festival venue outside of the designated days.
