Your Festival starts here

Welcome to C venues, the home of theatre and new work at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Our international curated programme, showcasing new writing, classic drama, musicals, opera, music, dance, comedy, cabaret, circus, children's and family shows, visual and performance art, makes us one of the most vibrant and and eclectic venues on the Fringe.

The 2020 Edinburgh Festival Fringe did not take place as planned, owing to the impact of Covid-19 and given public health considerations. We are sorry that the 2020 Fringe could not take place physically, but we believe the decision was taken in the best interests of Fringe participants, residents of Edinburgh, audiences, and the wider community.

Some Fringe-related activities took place online during August 2020, and these can be found at www.edfringe.com. C venues is taking part in Fringe Marketplace and Fringe Exchange, events to connect arts industry professionals looking to find shows with companies who were planning to bring work to the Fringe this year. You can find out more about our Fringe Marketplace programme here. We are also working to help and support our visiting companies and artists through this challenging time, and on starting to build a programme for the 2021 Fringe.

You can browse our 2019 Festival programme here.

Our website also contains information on bringing a show or event to join our programme, and on joining our Festival team. For more information and resources, please see the links at C venues above.

We wish you well, and look forward to welcoming you to our venues in 2021.
