Anywhere Festival Frankston – hosted by Frankston City Council – is a festival of performance anywhere but in a theatre. Kids shows in historic homes, drama in cafes, circus in a skate park, comedy and music. Anything, anywhere… but in a theatre.

In 2014, 72 performances by twenty groups performers in places as diverse as McClelland Sculpture Park, Chisholm Institute, Eeny Meeny Café, Rocatillo’s, Bayside Rock and the Seaford Train Station among many others.

“It’s like a curated fringe festival – but better, “said Paul Osuch. “Unlike the major fringe festivals, shows and audiences won’t get lost with a huge program – this is all about really fun shows in the nooks and crannies of Frankston.”

“Performers can express interest in presenting a show at 2015 Anywhere Festival in Frankston at www.anywherefest.com”, said Paul Osuch, Artistic Director of Anywhere Festival.

“This has been our most financially successful festival all year, even after touring our shows nationally!” Tessa Waters, performer at Anywhere Festival in Brisbane (Also performed at Melbourne Fringe and Adelaide Fringe).

Anywhere Festival is also looking for businesses who want to be part of fantastic Frankston wide initiative that also brings customers to their door by hosting a performance.
