WELCOME TO THE FREE EDINBURGH FRINGE
We're now busy
the 2014 Free Fringe Festival, which will be back in
Edinburgh from July 31st to August 24th 2014.
Keep an eye on this website for updates, and our
new programme will be available here from May
2014. (you can still have a look at last
years programme and reviews at the moment)
For performers - now is
the time to apply to take part in 2014...

performers area, and read about how the Free
Festival Works, to see the venues we have
available for 2014, and to put in your show
In 2013 we had another packed programme of shows
in venues across Edinburgh with over 6,400
performances of 365 different shows. Our shows won:
Edinburgh Comedy Awards,
Malcolm Hardee Awards, and were
nominated for the TO&ST Cabaret Awards,
and Total Theatre Awards. Shows
have transferred to the west end, will be
appearing worldwide, and some great things have
happened for many of our shows and performers.
All of this, along
with over 40 five star reviews shows, and 140
four star reviewed shows mean our free
shows are also 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!
2013 we had shows
in 20 venues, which had 36 performance spaces
between then - and we will be back at these
venues and more in 2014! We had a huge selection of Fringe
Comedy, Theatre, Cabaret,
Music, Spoken Word and Children's shows that
10th Anniversary year
another fantastic year of Fringe entertainment,
and probably our most critically acclaimed year
And as always, it was all Free!
with the performers asking for
a donation at the end, so audiences could get out and
see as much of the vibrant, manic, exciting
Fringe action as possible.
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
acts and audiences, please click button above
