It’s December, which means that we are now well and truly in countdown mode…no, we’re not counting down to Christmas.

We’re counting the days until the Fringe kicks off for 2023 (it’s 72 days, by the way)!

And one of the biggest moments in the countdown each year is when we find out who our Fringe Ambassadors are going to be.

Introducing the ambassadors for Australia’s biggest arts festival in 2023…
