Nicolson Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9DW

GMH surgeons

After a hugely successful debut season in 2009 followed by expansion and growth in the subsequent years theSpace team can now boast the most established stylish and well located multi-space venues on the fringe. Located on Nicholson Street, a minutes walk the Royal Mile opposite the Festival Theatre and yards from Bristo Square the venue sits in the courtyard at the historical Royal College of Surgeons.

Our four performance spaces play host to some 80 shows each year, and with an array of award nominations, feature coverage and a constant flow of 4 and 5 star reviews the venue continues to host an increasing number of sell-out shows with some 40,000 people visiting the venue during the 21 day festival.

With a reputation for offering one of the festivals most diverse cross-genre programmes the venue is complimented by a very stylish 200 seat courtyard bar and food village. It’s ulitmately one of the festivals busiest venues.
