Arrive Early for Seating

This allows you to join a queue as all venues are general admission and a mixture of seating and standing room. This is especially true for Edinburgh and Newcastle if you aim to eat in our clubs as seating with tables tend to be taken quite quickly and we can’t allocate or reserve seating in advance for that purpose.
For Edinburgh Fringe dates during August, we advise you arrive at least 30 minutes before doors open for your selected shows to collect your festival tickets.

There is no food service during Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
A concession rate ticket applies to 60+, Students, unemployed, benefit recipients with proof of ID upon collection.
