2021 Edinburgh Fringe - Latest Information
Last Update: 12th January 2021
The Edinburgh Fringe
  • The Fringe is planned to go ahead August 6th-30th this year and we are aiming to take part! As usual our dates will differ by one day, our shows should be running from August 5th to 29th. 
  • It is currently unknown what covid restrictions will be in place in August, and given current information from the government we are uncertain as to when we'll know. So at the moment we are aiming to run our larger venues with social distancing (1m+ with mitigation) and working from there if restrictions are relaxed.
  • Edinburgh Fringe deadlines are much later this year, there will be a physical programme, but also shows can register online-only. Given this, we are now looking at delaying programming as late as possible to see where things will be.
  • Current Fringe registration dates are: Registrations open: March 1st; Discount Programme registration deadline May 12th; Registrations deadline for printed programme  June 16th; General programme launch mid-July; Additional registrations after this added from July 26th. . 
  • You can log in to this site now to update shows and applications from 2020 if you wish. (click here)
  • At this time, we know we should be able to use the larger rooms at our venues - with smaller rooms less likely depending on how rigorous social distancing is. 
  • At the moment with all of the venues closed, and staff furloughed and not contactable in many cases, it is currently impossible to work out what might be possible at a lot of venues. We are in contact with as many venues as possible, and at the moment it is a waiting game for any certainty. 
  • We're expecting venues to be under social distancing and covid regulations as per 2020, so are expecting a very limited capacity, around 50% of capacity on rooms we can operate.
Shows rolling over from 2020
  • All shows who rolled over from 2020, will get first option for a space in 2021
  • As soon as we are confident in programming a space, we will be in contact with those shows; After shows in an operating space are contacted we'll offer gaps to other shows in spaces that cannot operate at the time. Sorry, but there is no current ETA on this, but we're looking to start this process in February/March.
New Applications for 2021
  • If you'd like to be considered for a space this year, please do put an application in now via this website.
  • There's no commitment, and obviously things may change with the Fringe at the moment - but by applying you will be on our applications and contact list so we can be in contact with you should we be able to programme your show in available space that we have.
  • Our performers contribution will remain the same as the 2020 contribution.
  • We will be dealing with rolled-over shows from 2020 before any new shows, given what is likely to be limited spaces, and can't yet say when we'll be in contact with any new shows - it's likely to be at least March at this stage.

I hope all of those details help, and naturally given the covid situation it's all somewhat changeable at this stage.
We also hope everyone keeps safe and well at this time, and for us to be back at the Fringe as soon as it's possible, and when it is safe for us to do so for our audiences, venue staff and performers.
