theSpace Venues – Award winning theatres at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe

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

The 2014 festival was our busiest yet with 290 shows gaining 95%+ audience capacities.

Our 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. It was good to see a wide selection of hot show recommendations and a record number of 4 and 5 star reviews as well as offers of national and international transfers and tours.

We are proud to host the largest and most diverse programme at the festival and we are pleased to have become established as the home of theatre and new work at the festival.

We are now programme for 2015 so 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.
