“Spaces filled with Fringe goodness”
(Three Weeks)

What a year!! 2019 saw an outstanding Fringe at theSpaceUK, our programme received critical acclaim (including winning the Award for Most Dynamic Programme) with numerous shows picking up awards, five-star reviews and tour transfers.

The Daniel Martinez Flamenco Company with their show Art of Believing described as ‘undiluted Andalusia' won the hugely coveted Herald Angel Award.

Cello On Fire by Peter Hudler - famed for his amazing unconventional method of playing everything from baroque to rock on a cello - won the highly acclaimed Three Weeks Editors Award.

The Good Scout (Boys of the Empire Productions) written by Taggart writer Glen Chandler followed on from their 2018 success by picking up the Best New Writing Award from ScotsGay.

And we should not forget Night Owl for their show The Aretha Franklin Story that won the Mervyn Stutter Spirit of the Fringe Award.

2019 was also a bumper year for top-rated performances at theSpaceUK with a 50% increase in 5-star reviews. Our ticket sales increased by 16% on 2019 with some 182,000 audience members seeing shows across our venues.

We now turn to the 2020 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and welcome applications from all to join the most eclectic and diverse programme at the modern Festival.
