Over the past two years, more than 200 docents have equipped with the knowledge of architecture, conservation, oral history and body language during the training workshops at Fringe Club. Secrets and stories of Fringe Club were unfolded to the public by them through their unique narratives.
The premises of Fringe Club were established in 1890 by Dairy Farm as its Central Depot. After Dairy Farm vacated the premises for almost 10 years, Fringe Club moved in and breathed new life into the building in 1983. Ever since then, Fringe Club has revitalised the building into an open platform for contemporary arts and has been declared as Grade I historic building.
Fringe Club is going under its 13th renovation. With the façade washed clean and a group of docents newly trained, we would like to take this opportunity to invite general public to come and explore the history of this over 100-year-old building.
Upcoming opportunities to join the tour will be 10 March and 24 March.
