WELCOME to theSpaceUK! The home of award-winning performance and new writing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

It’s with great pleasure that we present our 2024 programme.

theSpaceUK experience is how this fabulous festival is meant to be seen, every genre of live performance in one spectacular programme. We’re very proud to be known in Edinburgh for presenting new and original work, for harnessing grass roots performance, for identifying that untapped ‘gem’ as well as hosting work from established artists. Whether it be at our very stylish Royal Mile venues, the magical Venue 45 or our state-of-the-art hub at theSpace @ Surgeons’ Hall, Symposium Hall and theSpaceTriplex, complete with new theatres and garden bars we look forward to hosting another vast array of exceptional and award winning work from across the globe.

Of course we can’t make any of this happen without the commitment of all who bring shows. It’s to those creatives that we applaud loudly as another August in Edinburgh beckons.

Welcome and enjoy.
