Our Venues at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Performing at Paradise Green

Paradise Green is dedicated to providing friendly Edinburgh Fringe venues, with the interests of performing groups at the very heart of our operations. Our offer is a simple, inclusive deal, with a straight hire fee paid for your use of the venue and we don't take a box office share. That also means, for example, no box office commission and no fees for our in-house marketing.

We’ll provide you with a well-equipped and well-staffed theatre, so you can concentrate on the important part of bringing a show to the Fringe — the performance.

Fully fitted-out, licensed theatre Included
Standard technical equipment Included
Box Office linked to the Fringe Included
Front of House staff, including ushers where necessary Included
Technicians for daily changeovers Included
Venue brochure entry Included
Press & Marketing Support Included
Free admittance to ALL Paradise Green Shows (pending availability) Included
Discount at both Paradise Green snack bars for you & your company members Included

Where there are extra charges, these are always for something over and above the standard deal, and most of our groups pay no more than the standard charges listed. Any extra costs will be clearly identified and discussed with you beforehand.

How does it all work?

If this all sounds like your cup of tea, you can fill in a short application form. In the form, we ask for a brief overview of your show and for your preferences on show times, performing weeks and performance space. We'll then review your application as well as our availability and get in touch with your offer.

Payment for your show is due in instalments before you arrive in Edinburgh. The dates are spread out up until the end of July depending on when in the year you join us.

What else should you consider?

When planning and budgeting for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, here are a few key things to keep in mind:

Edinburgh Fringe Registration

We complete the administration for registering for you. However, the Fringe Society does require a fee to register with them. Registering means that the Fringe can sell tickets on your behalf on their website and in their box offices as well as giving lots of additional benefits.

Insurance and Rights

We require all companies to have Public Liability Insurance to perform with us. There are lots of specialist companies out there that have Fringe specific insurance.

You need to obtain the rights for the specific piece you are performing and any music you use (if applicable).
