In pictures: BGSU Fringe festival

This story is over

Bishop Grosseteste University hosted its third BGSU Fringe festival on Saturday, May 10.

The event was created two years ago as a way to raise money for charity and in memory of Richard Broadley, an ex-student who died of leukaemia in 2011, and Gillian Denton, the mother of BGU graduate Alice Denton, who suddenly passed away as a result of a heart condition.

The festival featured a variety of live music, drama and comedy acts performed by BGU students and alumni, as well as by members of the local community.

Over the last two years the BGSU Fringe event has raised over £3,000 in aid of charity.

This year’s event supported the university’s chosen RAG charity, the Teenage Cancer Trust, and the university’s charitable fund that helps to support students and alumni, the Foundation Fund.

This year it also raised funds for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, a charity chosen by Richard Broadley’s family.
