Your Festival starts here!
Dive into a packed programme of theatre, circus, cabaret, musicals, dance, comedy and children's shows at C, back for a twenty-fourth year of vibrant vivacious variety. With over 200 hand-picked shows and events, C is the place to find the most extraordinary shows from around the world and around the corner.
The acknowledged launchpad for new musical talent, and the home of the largest new writing programme on the Fringe, C showcases the best and the brightest work from up-and-coming companies. With over a quarter of our shows originating from outside the UK, we offer our pick of worldwide physical, musical and family theatre alongside some of the hottest work from the UK and Europe.
2015 sees a return to C cubed at Brodie's Close on the Royal Mile, just along the Lawnmarket from our C too venue, and a new Festival tent at C soco at ibis, next to the main C venue on Chambers Street. It's our fourth year at C nova, our seven-storey pop-up Festival palace at India Buildings, Victoria Street, showcasing some of our most exciting and experimental work, including immersive and site-specific shows, cabaret and film; and our second year at C south at St Peter's, Lutton Place, our Festival oasis on the Southside with extensive gardens and alfresco café-bar.
With six venues at the heart of the city and the Fringe, you're never far from the friendliest, funkiest Festival experience. Soak up the atmosphere in our bars and cafés, indoors and outdoors, through the day and into the night. And book for just five shows to discover great savings and on-the-spot discounts with our iCmore card.
From Bardic breakfasts to midnight cabaret, C is the centre of your Festival. Everything for everyone, every day. Make sure you see it all.
