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

We were very proud to host 185,000+ audience members at the 2023 festival. It was fabulous to host a record number of reviews for our shows, some 1200 in total. Well done to all our amazing companies for the passion and hard work they put in to bring work to the festival.

Artiste recognition was as ever in abundance including two Fringe First Awards and winners of the Musical Theatre awards pick of the Fringe. Additionally it was fabulous to see so many shows included in awards shortlists or receiving 5 and 4 star reviews with a good % now looking forward to taking their work forward either on tour or to various venues across the globe.

We now turn to planning for EdFringe 2024, we are already programming work with many returning and new performing companies booking already. We invite your application! Our ethos is buried in the roots of the festival as a platform for all so don't be shy, send us an application, we'll be in touch by return and look forward to welcoming you as part of the most exciting and best located venues in town!
