Each winter we offer awards to young people who plan to put on an event at Brighton Fringe the following May.

A panel of expert judges pick the winners, who each receive their registration fees, £300 towards production costs and mentoring sessions with industry professionals.

Coming Home With Me confronts the perils of creepy dudes, lad culture, and general unwanted attention that face almost every girl when partying.

Using verbatim testimony and drawing from real news stories, we explore how this affects us all. The subject matter is dark and deeply human, but is tackled in an entertaining and hopeful way.”

Maddie and her company, Girl Code, will be presenting their event at Sweetwerks 2.
