If you needed another reason to explore Melbourne right now, the city is being treated to its first major post-lockdown cultural event. Marking the slow return of events to Melbourne, the annual Fringe Festival is back both online and in-person for its 2020 iteration. The dynamic range of comedy, theatre and performing arts will take place outdoors, online and around the city between Thursday, November 12 and Sunday, November 29.

Many of the works on this year's program were created throughout the last turbulent year and the months of lockdown Melbourne has endured. Highlights include a miniature diorama of Ned Kelly's life set up in a Fitzroy costume shop, a nightly live-streamed news spoof comedy show and a live band that will play outside of aged-care homes across Melbourne.

Patrons are also invited to join cult cabaret icon Tomás Ford from the comfort of their bathtub for his performance Come Have a Bath With Me, whilst performance artwork Losing Touch will be one of Melbourne's first outdoor post-lockdown events, taking place in Abbotsford Convent on Wednesday, November 25.

The full program is available at the Melbourne Fringe Website with each performance and artwork assigned a rating so you know how family-friendly and socially distant it is.
