Edinburgh Fringe venue and hub

Greenside added the South Bridge Resource Centre to its stable of Fringe venues in 2015. "Greenside @ Infirmary Street" had four spaces at Fringe 2022.

Prior to Greenside's use of the venue, Fringe operator Rocket Venues rented the building in August from 1996 (venue 123). 

Longer term the venue is due to be developed as the main hub for the Edinburgh Fringe Society, the charity that represents the Edinburgh Fringe. 

In April 2023, the Fringe Society announced that it was planning on using the Centre as “a vibrant, mixed use community space for all and a hub for the Fringe Society's services and team”.
