TO THE FREE EDINBURGH
We are now
starting to prepare for the 2016 Free Festival,
which will run from August 4th to 28th 2016
- plus four extra days of the Children's
Festival starting on July 31st...
We will have some new
exciting venues, and a few new surprises, so
keep an eye on this website in late May, for
when our 2016 programme is launched!
PERFORMERS - Now is the time to apply to perform
with us in 2016!
now taking performer applications for our venues
for the 2016 Fringe
- if you would like to bring a show to the
Edinburgh Fringe with us in 2016, now is the
time to apply. All of the details are in our
along with our online application form....
2015 Was another great year! We had
another fantastic year of shows in 2015 across
our venues, that where al busier than ever. Our line-up featured some top names in
Comedy, Theatre, Cabaret, Children's shows, Music
and much more rocking Edinburgh for these four
weeks, plus of course the very best we can find
in new talent. And of course, it's was all for free!
2015 our shows
and performers won or where nominated for
numerous awards, an
amazing recognition of our programming.... and
we hope to do just as well in 2016.
We also had a
hugely critically acclaimed Fringe last year,
with over a bucket load of five star reviewed shows and
even more four star reviewed shows - which proves our free
shows are a sign of top quality Fringe shows,
while we let performers and audiences
experience the freedom of the Fringe, with a
chance to experiment and enjoy. Just what the
Fringe should be!
Do check out our
programme from 2015, which is still live on
this website at the moment - and keep your diary from
for August 2016 for our next year of shows -
they will all appear here in late May.
We'll also be in Brighton in May,
as part of the Laughing Horse's programme of
free and paid shows (check our
www.brightonfringefest.co.uk for that) and
there are plans afoot for out first
international free festival soon. Here's looking
forward to a fantastic 2016!
The Free Festival costs a lot of money...
this money is recouped through sponsorship,
advertising and our comedy courses... If you would
like to contribute and help keep the venues free for
