First round of Fringe World 2020 Awards announced

There are hundreds of Fringe World shows on and it can be a challenge to work out which ones you should be rushing to see.

One good indicator of a show’s quality is if it picks up a Fringe World Award. Each week hundreds of secret judges who work in the cultural industries visit shows and give feedback on their quality, and at the end of the week the awards are handed out.

Here’s what picked up awards at the end of the first week.
