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-fifth 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.
Details of the 2016 programme will be announced in June. In the meantime you can browse last year's season here.
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.
