theSpace on North Bridge

fringe venue

Located where the Royal Mile meets North Bridge the venue is located perfectly for Fringe audiences. And, with our other theatres at theSpace on the Mile, theSpace @ Venue 45 and theSpace on Niddry St all just a few yards away, we are pleased to be able to offer audiences a wonderful theatre hub right at the centre of the festival.

The venue has a strong reputation for small to mid-scale theatre, music, improv, sketch and comedy. In recent years shows here have won varied awards including the Daily Mail Pick of the Fringe, various NSDF nominations and the Three Weeks Editors Award. The theatres are suitable for casts of 1-12.
