From the About page:

Brighton Fringe is the largest arts festival in England and one of the largest fringe festivals in the world. It sets out to stimulate, educate and entertain a wide audience by providing a showcase for diverse art forms. Everyone can take part, in fact, whilst enjoying a friendly and supportive environment. And all this in an iconic city with unique cultural heritage.

Brighton Fringe takes place every May, and for the second time, it’s going to be a 4-week festival in 2014 (3 May – 1 June) to include the summer half-term holiday. This vast celebration of all things creative has grown out of and is inspired by home-grown talent: more than 50% of participants are based in Brighton & Hove. In 2013, we had 734 individual events, 176 free events, 3654 performances at 185 venues. To find out more about the 2013 festival, take a look at our Annual Review.

Anyway, I have been asked to talk at the Spiegeltent on the 29th May at 6-7, so if you are in the area, please do come along. I was really hoping to do a new talk where I was going to ‘Eastwood’ God by talking to an empty chair (with a Hawaiian shirt and a cocktail to signify him being on a fricking long holiday for 2,000 years). As it turns out, they (the Philosophy group which is putting this particular set of talks on) have had a lot of God/no God talks and I would be speaking to the converted. So we have agreed that I will deliver my free will talk, which I may mess around with in some way, but which has gone down really well every time I have given it.

There you go, do come along and join the audience of perhaps a couple of hundred people.
