Our Fringe Angel and Patron scheme offers individuals the opportunity to show their support for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, whilst also receiving a range of benefits to enhance their Fringe experience. 

Our Fringe Angels and Patrons are invaluable to the Fringe Society. The encouragement and support our Angels and Patrons give the Fringe Society help us to grow both nationally and internationally; allowing the Fringe Society to nurture the artists and performers who flock to Edinburgh in August.

Membership starts at £500, which can be paid as a one off donation or as instalments throughout the year.


Fringe Patron (2018 Fringe) - £500 per year

Alongside all of the benefits received by our Best Friends, Fringe Patrons will receive a unique insight to the Fringe Society to bring you even closer to the Festival Fringe. And of course we will thank you in the Fringe programme and here on edfringe.com.


Fringe Angel (2018 Fringe) - £1,600 to £10,000 per year

Alongside all of the benefits received by our Best Friends, Fringe Angels will receive a unique insight to the Fringe Society to bring you even closer to the Festival Fringe. You will have behind-the-scenes access to Fringe Central, our participants’ hub throughout the Fringe, as well as time with members of our Senior Management team. And of course we will thank you in the Fringe programme and here on edfringe.com.
