WELCOME TO THE FREE EDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL....

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! We are 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 Performers Section, along with our online application form.... Click Here!

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!

In 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!

Running The Free Festival costs a lot of money... some of this money is recouped through sponsorship, advertising and our comedy courses... If you would like to contribute and help keep the venues free for acts and audiences, please click button above
