Our Fringe Angels and Patrons scheme offers individuals the opportunity to show their support for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society while 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 provide help the Fringe Society to grow both nationally and internationally, allowing us 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.
