Registration fee instalment option

We offer a staggered payment plan available option to those who would benefit from not having to pay the full fee due all at once, at the point of registration. If you are interested in this option, then please check your eligibility for the scheme via the link below:
You have completed the show registration form, are ready to submit with all required fields filled, and all the information you have provided is final and ready to print.
You agree to a set of fixed instalment dates on which payments must be received.
If you fail to make the payments as agreed, we will cancel your show registration and refund all monies received up to that date.

During August 

Your registration fee gives you access to all of the services offered by the Fringe Society during August, including: 

  • Professional development workshops, networking events and panel discussions about current affairs, led by worldwide industry leaders and always BSL interpreted. 
  • Marketing support to help you home in on the goals of your marketing campaign. 
  • Support around PPL / PRS music licensing on the Fringe including an anticipated bespoke and blanket arrangement negotiated for Fringe companies for 2022. 
  • Opportunities to connect with arts industry professionals, including promoters, tour bookers and film / TV producers from all over the UK and overseas. 
  • Our one-to-one artist advice service helps you understand how to navigate the opportunities for your show, identify your goals and how and who to contact to help you realise your ambitions. 
  • Professional, impartial support and advice for almost any issue which might arise, including mediation services if you have any issues with your venue or company. 
  • Tickets for your show – be it online or in person – sold through the Fringe Box Office, with access to one of the world’s most engaged and excited arts audiences: more than three million tickets booked in 2019! 
  • A show listing on (which had more than 2.3 million visitors in 2019), giving Fringe audiences a seamless journey from browsing shows to buying tickets. 

All year round 

Whether you have a registered show with the Fringe Society or not, the below services are open to everyone, all year round: 

  • Step-by-step guidance on how to bring your show to the Fringe, from advice on making your show more accessible or environmentally friendly, to assistance navigating music licensing and insurance, to information on post-Fringe touring. 
  • The FringeCast online information series, offering episode-by-episode guidance on every step of bringing your show to the Fringe. 
  • Year-round practical advice and support from the Artist Services team, including one-to-one sessions if needed. 
  • Marketing advice to help you promote your Fringe show

In fact, much of the above advice, guidance and services are already freely available on this website – your registration fee ensures we can keep them updated and useful for anyone who wants to come to the Fringe.

Standing up for artists 

Income from registration fees and other sources also allow the Fringe Society to support artists and the wider cultural sector more broadly: 

  • We use our influence and agency to lobby for support, investment and recognition of the performing arts, artists, freelancers, companies and venues. 
  • We promote the value of participation in the Fringe all over the world, and lobby arts councils and funding agencies across the UK and internationally to support performing arts. 
  • We continually innovate and pioneer advanced support services for curators, programmers and commissioners coming to the Fringe to discover new work and talent, the better to open up more career opportunities for Fringe artists. 
  • We provide support for the world’s media to cover the Fringe, and for critics and arts journalists to see and review work, enhancing artists’ profiles. 
  • We work with government to make the case for ease of movement for artists, including securing permit-free status for our festival so that artists needn’t require work visas to perform here. 
  • While the Fringe Society has no role in curating the Fringe or in running venues, we do set guidance on best practise and standards for companies and venues, and use our influence to help make the Fringe the best experience for all who participate.  
  • We regularly consult and form strategic partnerships with members of the artistic community (such as Something to Aim For and Somewhere at the Fringe) to ensure we’re addressing current concerns and offering the best support that we can.  

How your registration fee helps others 

Your registration fee helps fund all of the above services that support artists to come to the Fringe, as well as the collaborative work we do with partner organisations to ensure that artists’ race, disabilities or socio-economic background don’t form a barrier to participation.  

Your fees also contribute towards the Fringe Society’s other charitable work, including making the festival more accessible to D/deaf and disabled people and connecting Fringe artists with schools and communities, building and supporting new audiences among those typically least likely to engage with the Fringe, so that everyone can benefit from this amazing festival. 


Please carefully read the terms and conditions of registering a show with the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society. These can also be found on Edfringeware at the point of show creation.

Please get in touch with [email protected] if you have any specific questions about the information on this page. A member of our team can set up a 10-minute slot to talk things over with you on the phone or on a video call.

Please note, slots are based on team availability.
