Plan your Fringe Visit

Let us help you find a show, find your venue and tell you all the important things you need to know to make your Fringe experience the absolute best!

Find a show

You're doing Fringe right when you go on a Fringe Binge and see loads of Fringe shows!

Here's some tips to help you find shows:

  • Download the FRINGE WORLD app for customised recommendations, maps, to buy tickets and more.
  • Get to know our Hubs and Venues. Places like The Woodside Pleasure Garden are great to soak up the atmosphere whilst you decide what show to see next.
  • Get show recommendations from Fringefeed, the home of Fringe reviews and news (updated daily!). Fringefeed is also available on the app.
  • During the Festival, grab a last minute bargain with Rushtix.

What to bring with you

Many FRINGE WORLD venues are licensed and you may be asked for valid Photo ID to gain entry. In some instances, under 18's are welcome to licensed areas but must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or guardian and the decision to allow entry is entirely at the discretion of the licensee. Each venue can have different licensing conditions so please check the venue license rules on our website before purchasing a ticket. 

Most venues are cashless, so bring your credit/debit card.

Getting to and from your venue

The map in the FRINGE WORLD app will make getting to your venue a breeze. You can use the map to find parking nearby and a train station, if it's within 15mins walking distance. Neato!

Don’t forget to arrive early for your show so you have time to relax with a pre-show drink or treat. Some shows don't permit late entry.

We now have e-ticketing and venues don’t require you to have a printed ticket to gain entry to the show. Simply show your order confirmation email or your e-ticket on the FRINGE WORLD app to gain entry. 

A queue will form outside your venue before showtime and most shows have unallocated seating, so line up early to get your pick of the seats or join the Friends club to skip the line.

Please note that government-mandated contract tracing will be required at venues. Click here for more COVID-19 related information.
