This is the application for our main programme. Keep in mind that often we won’t see your show until the festival so it’s important that you give us as clear an idea here, on paper, as possible.

We operate entirely on a box office split between the show team and the venue, which will be paid out after the Fringe has ended. This split is most often 50/50. We do not charge for a deposit or enforce a minimum capacity.Additional costs may be incurred, including the use of in-house technicians or flyerers.

Key Things

  1. You cannot save or return to this application, it must be filled out in one go.
  2. We programme on a rolling basis. We review every application submitted and will get in touch if we have any additional questions or concerns.
