Everyone should have the opportunity to express themselves through creativity and experience the thrill of live performance.

The Fringe Days Out scheme, launched in 2017, provides over 30 Edinburgh based charities and community groups with Fringe ticket vouchers and bus passes, so that their service users’ whole festival experience is free to access.

The success of the Fringe relies on the city and its residents, and we are committed to finding ways for even more Edinburgh people to engage with and enjoy the arts. No matter who you are or where you come from, everyone is welcome.

Making a difference:

Since its launch, people from across Edinburgh have been able to make over 16,000 visits to the festival through Fringe Days Out, many of whom had never experienced the Fringe before.

"The vouchers were even more beneficial this year, due to the cost-of-living crisis.’"
