Every penny you give makes a difference.

Our supporters’ generosity plays a vital role in making sure the Edinburgh Festival Fringe continues to be the most valuable platform for international work in the UK and the most significant international platform for Scottish work in the world.

The Fringe Society was founded by artists to nurture and uphold the Fringe's values of inclusivity, experimentation and imagination – it exists to:

  • provide support, advice and encouragement to all the amazing artists, producers and venues who create the Fringe each year
  • assist audiences by helping to navigate what’s on offer with comprehensive, accurate and up-to-date information and ticketing
  • celebrate the Fringe and what it stands for all over the world.

We work year-round to support the Fringe, but couldn’t do it without the enthusiasm of the people of Edinburgh, combined with the long-standing support of our audiences, sponsors and supporters and the goodwill of our Fringe Friends, Patrons and Angels. Join them today, and help us keep making the Fringe the single greatest celebration of arts and culture on the planet.
