theSpace Venues – Award winning theatres at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe

theSpaceUK, the home of live performance at the heart of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The 2014 festival was our busiest yet with 290 shows gaining 95%+ audience capacities. We were proud to host companies from some 15 countries performing a wide range of performance genre, we offered the most diverse programme on the fringe.

Our diverse programme continued to flourish with another NSDF Award for best show. Other awards included the prestigious Bobby Award, the Daily Mail and UK Drama Edinburgh Festival Fringe Award and the Derrick Award for best show.

Many other shows were shortlisted including three for the National Musical Theatre award. It was good to see a wide selection of hot show recommendations as well as a record number of 4 and 5 star reviews and shows being offered national and international transfers and tours.

We are now beginning to programme for 2015 so please get in touch. We offer the best venue locations in Edinburgh and a varied choice of theatres to suit all performance genres. Please see our venues via the links below.
