About the venue

Fringe Central is a hub for Fringe staff, those involved in putting on shows, and media covering the Fringe. If you got bitten by the Fringe bug, this is the place to go to learn more about putting on a Fringe show.

The Fringe Society’s Arts Industry Office and Media Office provide practical resources and facilities for participants and assistance for members of the press (cafeteria, computer bank, and wifi).

Fringe Central's free programme of workshops cover the business and marketing, as well as creative side, of putting on shows.


Fringe Central was formerly listed as the Fringe Press and Performance Centre, it moved from its Old Town location down the narrow close at the side of the Fringe Shop and Box Office to Edinburgh University's Appleton Tower block in the George Square campus.
