Hello and welcome to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2023!

We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome you back to one of the world’s foremost celebrations of live performance, taking place in one of the most spectacular cities on the planet.

Edinburgh’s well-earned reputation as a cultural touchstone stretches back to the days of the Scottish Enlightenment (and before!), so it’s fitting that a festival of such renown takes place among these historic streets and buildings. As ever, we wish a sincere thanks to the city and its residents for being at the heart of the Fringe.

A thousand thanks also to the Fringe creatives without whom there would be no festival. From the eight companies who rocked up in 1947, to the artists who founded the Fringe Society in 1958, this festival has always been driven by artistic dedication and creativity. Some Fringe shows give us a much-needed escape from our day-to-day concerns; others help us to understand them better. We look forward to both the joy and inspiration this August.

A massive thanks to all the participants who help make the Fringe what it is: the venues and producers, the thousands of staff and freelancers working across the Fringe; members of the media and arts industry; the local businesses and suppliers; a steadfast array of sponsors, partners and organisations. The Fringe is a team effort and it wouldn’t be the same without you.

Our final thanks are for you, the audience – the ones booking the tickets, filling the seats and spreading the indefinable buzz this festival thrives on. It’s an oftrepeated fact that Fringe shows live or die on word of mouth, and we urge you to keep that tradition alive: if you see a show that makes you laugh, cry, scream or anything in between, please shout about it to your friends, your family, your followers and your fellow Fringe-goers.

The chief strength of the Fringe is the massive variety on offer. From swimming pools and boxing clubs; from free, to paid, to pay-what-you-want – there is the chance to curate your own unique festival experience. Our job is to help you find the shows you’ll carry with you for years to come, so please visit edfringe.com for tips and guidance, check in with our access services if you need them (see page 08 for more info) and download our app (see page 07) to fill any gaps in your show schedule.

In other words – fill yer boots!

About the Fringe

For three weeks in August, the city of Edinburgh welcomes an explosion of creative energy from around the globe, with artists and performers taking to hundreds of stages all over the city to present shows for every taste.

It all began in 1947 with eight companies – six of them from Scotland – taking a risk, turning up uninvited and performing on the ‘fringe’ of the inaugural Edinburgh International Festival. Over 75 years later, the Fringe has grown to become a world-renowned celebration of arts and culture, a byword for adventurous performance and the premier meeting place for artists and creatives to perform, gather, exchange, discover and select new work.

We believe that everyone, irrespective of their background, should have the opportunity to experience and express themselves through creativity. No individual or committee determines who can or cannot appear at the Fringe; our vision is to give anyone a stage and everyone a seat.

About the Fringe Society

The Fringe Society is a registered charity that was founded by artists to:

• support, advise and encourage everyone who wants to participate in the Fringe

• provide information and assistance to Fringe audiences

• celebrate the Fringe and what it stands for all over the world.

With a year-round team of 42, the Fringe Society works to support the artists and audiences that make this festival happen, and engages with communities and schools in Edinburgh to inspire greater participation in the arts.

For updates on Fringe Society activities, follow @EdFringeSociety on Twitter.

Donations

Taking part this year?

The Fringe Society has a range of resources and support to help you make the most of your time at the Fringe.

Fringe Central is our participants’ hub during August; it’s where artists and members of the media and arts industry can access Fringe Society services, helping them make the most of what the festival has to offer. These services include a programme of panel discussions and networking events, one-to-one sessions focused on helping artists develop their careers, and mental health first aid check-ins, alongside handy practical facilities such as wifi and computer and printer access.

It’s also a space where artists can escape the hustle and bustle of the festival; a place where you can take a breather and not have to worry about being ‘on’ or constantly selling your show. Drop by and say hello to one of our friendly Fringe Central team – we’re here to support you.

Be our Friend

The Fringe Society is a small charity which you can support by becoming a Fringe Friend.

Fringe Friends pay an annual membership fee which provides vital support for the Fringe Society’s charitable objectives. In return, Friends receive benefits such as:

• 2for1 tickets to participating shows

• an exclusive booking line during the Fringe

• discounts at the Fringe shop.

We have several membership tiers to suit different budgets, with a variety of benefits available at each tier. On average, benefits are worth double the amount of membership cost for each tier.

Every penny of your Friends membership will help the Fringe Society support artists as well as ensuring everyone, regardless of their background or circumstances, has the chance to enjoy the Fringe in future. Support from our Fringe Friends has helped us achieve so much already, such as providing and improving access facilities at the Fringe (see pages 08 and 09) and engaging with local schools (page 13) and community groups (page 12).

For more information on becoming a Fringe Friend, visit edfringe.com/support-us/friends, email friends@edfringe.com or call +44 (0)131 226 0036.

Prices listed are for unreserved seats in almost all cases.

Shows marked 18+ may be in venues that do not allow under-18s at all or at some points in the day due to licensing laws, despite the age ratings of the shows they host. Where possible, this information is included in the show and venue listings, but please check with the venue before you buy tickets to ensure everyone in your party can attend.

E-ticketing

All Fringe shows are e-ticketed so there’s no need to collect physical tickets. Once you’ve booked your ticket(s) you’ll receive a confirmation email containing a QR code – this is your ticket. You can also find your e-ticket QR code in the ‘my tickets’ area on edfringe.com and in the ‘my planner’ section of the Fringe app.

If you’ve booked tickets for multiple shows in a single transaction, this QR code will be the ticket for every show in that transaction. You will need to show the QR code on arrival at your venue(s); you can do this on your phone or tablet, or print it if required.

If you’ve bought tickets on behalf of others, we recommend that you arrive at the venue with the rest of your party.

Booking advice and fees

A booking fee of £1.25 per ticket is applied to all bookings (up to a maximum of £5 per transaction) including in-person counter sales. This contributes towards the Fringe Society’s charitable objectives and helps support the artists, venues and creatives that make the Fringe happen every year.

Tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded, except in the event of a show cancellation.

Latecomers may not be admitted at the discretion of the venue.

For many performances, general concession prices are applicable to students, the registered unemployed, disabled customers, senior citizens (65 and over) and children under the age of 18. See page 06 for details. Please note, proof of concession status must be presented at the venue.

With thousands of half-price tickets available every day, the Half Price Hut is the place to grab a bargain. Scan the QR code or visit edfringe.com for more information about this year’s Half Price Hut.

Free shows can be ticketed or non-ticketed. If a show is free ticketed, please ensure you book a ticket to attend.

Some shows use a model where you can either buy a ticket in advance to guarantee entry or pay what you want at the venue. This will be indicated at the point of purchase. Many free and pay-what-you-want/can shows ask audiences to contribute money at the end of the performance if they are able.

Fringe street events

Every Fringe, parts of the city are transformed into huge street performance playgrounds where hundreds of world-class artists showcase their amazing talent, creating the most vibrant and visible event of Edinburgh’s summer.

Are the street events free to access?

Admission to the street events is free. However, as street performers do not receive a fixed fee, they rely on your generous donations – so, if you can afford it, please put money in their hats. If you don’t carry cash, don’t worry, many will provide you with the option to leave a contactless donation.

And if you enjoy a performance, don’t forget to applaud!

What’s on when?

For dates and a daily timetable of performances, please visit edfringe.com/streetevents. You’ll also find schedule boards at all performance areas listing the shows happening that day.

What’s on where?

Fringe street events will take place across the Royal Mile, Hunter Square and the Mound Precinct.

EventScotland is delighted to be supporting this year’s Edinburgh street events. Find out more about Scotland’s year-round events at visitscotland.com/events.

What will I see?

The street events offer daily family-friendly performances throughout the Fringe – you’ll find a colourful display of artistry and acrobatics, redefining the limits of your imagination. Magic, pantomime, extraordinary diabolo numbers, incredible fire artists and juggling acts are all at play for you to admire. Street comedians and artists will stop you in your tracks and cause laughter and amazement in equal measure. You can also expect living statues and festival favourites such as portrait artists, balloon twisters, face painters, hair braiders, henna artists, tarot readers and more to get you into the full festival swing.

Keep it Fringe Fund

The £100,000 Keep it Fringe fund was launched earlier this year by the Fringe Society’s Honorary President, Phoebe WallerBridge. The fund, supported by the Fleabag for Charity campaign and funds donated to the Fringe Society, was set up to distribute 50 bursaries of £2,000 to artists and companies bringing work to the Fringe in 2023.

At the fund’s launch in March 2023, Phoebe said,

For a creative, the festival is one of the most unique places on the planet to launch work, meet other artists and be discovered by audiences, agents, producers and the media.

For me, today’s announcement is incredibly personal. Edinburgh Fringe gave Fleabag a game-changing platform for everyone involved and we are thrilled that the show can continue to pay it forward to the creatives of tomorrow and contribute to those who might not otherwise have the opportunity to take their work to this amazing festival.

The fund received 677 applications, which were assessed by a diverse group of external assessors on the lookout for shows that captured the defiant spirit of the Fringe; shows that could take advantage of the festival as a unique platform to tell untold stories. The 50 successful award recipients represent the great breadth of variety and diversity that makes up the festival, spanning sketch comedy, musicals, stand-up, spoken word for children, plays, ventriloquist horror, immersive theatre for one audience-member at a time, drag, performance art, variety, solo work and pole dancing. These stories talk to the very essence and spirit of the Fringe.

From emerging artists and those presenting at the Fringe for the first time to more established acts returning to the festival, the recipients reflect performers at every stage of their career, from a wide variety of backgrounds. Nearly one in two of the award recipients are disabled or have a health condition, and one in three come from a working-class background.

The funding has been used to cover a variety of expenses, including childcare, transportation, media and PR support, help to meet Living Wage pay, supporting access costs for artists and production costs associated with performing. The successful recipients are set to present work across a range of spaces in Edinburgh, offering a mix of paid-for and free shows.

The Keep it Fringe fund is a pilot, and part of the Fringe Society’s wider fundraising campaign. The ambition is to provide direct financial support for Fringe artists every year, with widening eligibility where possible. The Fringe Society recognises that these funds won’t make or break a show but should provide a little bit of financial help to those who want to take part in the Fringe.

If you or your organisation want to help artists attend the Fringe, please consider supporting the Keep it Fringe Fund. With over 600 applications in its first year, there is huge demand. Contact support.us@edfringe.com.

Fringe Days Out

Fringe Days Out was launched in 2017 as part of our 70th anniversary celebrations. The project provides Edinburgh-based charities and community groups with free Fringe ticket vouchers and bus passes, so that their whole festival experience is free.

The organisations that take part in Fringe Days Out work with a broad range of people and communities who are at risk of social exclusion, including young people, single parents, isolated elderly, disabled people, global majority communities, refugees, asylum seekers, LGBT people and many more. Thirteen of our partners work with people living in the top 20% most deprived areas in Scotland; two of them operate in the top 5% most deprived areas as mapped out by the Scottish Government.

By working with these organisations, we’re able to reach a broad cross-section of communities in Edinburgh through trusted, pre-established relationships. We can encourage recipients to be adventurous in what they choose to see by fostering open conversations with people they know and trust. We can also start to better understand what else the Fringe Society can do to open doors and enable communities to celebrate culture and creativity on their own terms.

By providing people with Fringe ticket vouchers, we are empowering them to explore the full Fringe programme and see any show they wish. By providing bus passes, we are making it simpler for people to travel into town, removing the potential barrier of transport costs. In addition, we provide extra support towards other secondary costs such as volunteer expenses, refreshments or taxis for those unable to travel by public transport; the groups identify and address barriers relevant to them.

Since 2017, more than 12,500 people have used Fringe Days Out to visit the festival, many for the first time. The Fringe Society works throughout the year to identify and minimise barriers to attendance, whether social, economic or geographical; this supports our vision ‘to give anyone a stage and everyone a seat’.

The future of Fringe Days Out

We have set the ambitious target to increase the value of Fringe Days Out to £150,000 by 2025. Among other things, this will enable us to:

• work with our partners to find out how we can best use our resources to help them realise their cultural ambitions

• develop our complimentary Community Ticketing Initiative to better support, promote and widen access for those who are vulnerable, marginalised or isolated

• seek other partners, such as food and drink providers and local businesses, to broaden the scope of Fringe Days Out.

If you feel inspired by any of these ideas and think you can help the Fringe Society achieve any of our goals, we would love to hear from you.

Teachers’ Theatre Club

Teachers’ Theatre Club is a joint project between the Fringe Society and Imaginate to help teachers in Edinburgh and the Lothians experience live performance.

Participants get to attend performances, take part in group discussions with some of the artists and creative teams who made and / or presented the work, and meet industry professionals such as programmers and arts critics. These discussions enable participants to feel more confident about discussing live performance and sharing opinions, both as individuals and as teachers.

The group also discusses how the shows can enhance and inform teaching practice by:

• bringing a class to see a theatre or dance performance

• incorporating aspects of the discussion into their teaching practice

• developing creative activities and tasks around the themes of a performance.

Since 2019, we have worked with 28 teachers from 24 schools across Edinburgh and the Lothians and 16 teachers from 15 schools around the rest of Scotland.

When applying to be a part of Teachers’ Theatre Club, I saw it as interesting CPD (continuous professional development). I never thought for a second that it would give me so much more. Over the course of the project I have engaged in discussions with a wide range of professionals in the arts, experienced theatre that I would never have thought to go see myself and discussed how I would use these shows with my pupils. I have laughed, cried, debated and been comfortable in talking about what I have both liked and disliked about performances. However, what has taken me by surprise is the camaraderie I have experienced. I didn’t expect to leave this project with new friendships and a fantastic group of people that I know I can call upon to go see a show with me. I hope this project runs for many years to come, and I urge as many teachers as possible to experience this. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it.

(Teachers’ Theatre Club year one member)

Teachers’ Theatre Club is just one of the projects we use to engage with learning and education in Edinburgh, in order to foster a lifelong passion for the arts among Scotland’s young people and champion creative learning in our schools and colleges.

If you feel inspired by any of these ideas and think you can help the Fringe Society achieve any of our goals, we would love to hear from you.
