SHEDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL to help the next generation of artists make it to the Fringe.

by SHEDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL in Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom



SHEDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL a brand new online festival and fundraiser presenting the very best of the Fringe stalwarts of theatre, music and comedy, and the best new acts, all performed live from sheds across the country and streamed into people’s homes this August. 


All donations will go to the SHED LOAD OF FUTURE fund for the preservation of the Fringe: financially supporting future artists and creatives with grants to help them make it to Edinburgh for the first time next year. 

Your donations are a direct investment in the future creatives able to make and take work to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. 


Firstly, you can buy a ticket to see one of our top-quality shed shows. If you want to check out the schedule just go to

However, we do also have a few very exciting limited edition festival specials for you over on the rewards section of this page including: 

- A SHEDINBURGH poster, signed by all the performers

- A Shout-Out for that special someone from our presenters for you on a date of your choosing

- One of Gary McNair's famous 'Crap Face' drawings of a performer of your choosing. Signed by Gary and by the performer 

- A SHEDINBURGH tea-towel with performer self-portraits - just like the one you got at primary school



Tickets fare purchased as donations to the SHED LOAD OF FUTURE FUND, starting from just £4. There is no limit to what you can donate and we kindly ask that if you are watching with multiple people, you consider making a donation per person. 

You’ll receive an email from the SHEDINBURGH box office on the day of the performance with a link and instructions of how to watch. 

All performances are streamed online via Zoom so you can watch from a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android device.



SHEDINBURGH is a programme of live-streamed socially distanced performances from sheds based at either The Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh, Soho Theatre in London, or from the homes of those artists unable to travel at this time.

Acts have been asked to revive and reimagine past performances for a shed, rather than a theatre, with minimal staging and with a digital audience. A challenge worthy of the Fringe, our performers are taking on quite the task. 

At a time when venues face an uncertain future and artists are struggling SHEDINBURGH will shout loud about the Fringe’s vital role in global culture, celebrate its past successes and breakthrough artists and provide a platform for the talent that would have been on this year. 

SHEDINBURGH will take place between 14 August – 5 September with daily events including ‘one night only’ performances from established Fringe favourites, slots for new artists through Open Call Submissions and industry panel discussions. 

Featuring shows from Helen Baer, Tim Crouch, Rosie Jones, Adam Kashmiry, Yolanda Mercy, Deborah Frances-White, Gary McNair, Sara Pascoe, Steen Raskopoulos, Jack Rooke, Joe Sellman-Leava, Mark Thomas and more.
