The independent arts project holds a variety of events throughout the year.

Each year, in the run-up to the Bury St Edmunds Festival in May, Bury Fringe stages a celebration of local music with a series of concerts.

One of the organisers, Seymour Quigley, said the gigs are “designed to showcase the amazing range of outstanding musical talent this region has to offer”.

He said: “This year’s highlights include the debut gig by Kate Jackson and the Wrong Moves - the new project from former Long Blondes singer (and bona fide indie star) Kate Jackson - steampunk sensations Metropolis, a night dedicated to our amazing metal scene headlined by Men of Munga, and an all-dayer with 30 acts playing across three stages, headlined by the all-conquering kings of Manningtree, Dingus Khan.”

The concerts are all taking place at the Hunter Club, in St Andrew’s Street South, and kick off next Saturday - April 4 - from 7pm with Kate Jackson and the Wrong Moves, Metropolis, Echo Tree and Tradition.

Mr Quigley said Echo Tree and Tradition (formerly The Selected) are “two of the most exciting acts to emerge in the past few months”.
