28 Aug 2017,
The Edinburgh Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world, and Underbelly is one of its largest venue operations; we sold 291,000 tickets to our shows in 2017. Our portfolio includes several venues across the city: Udderbelly’s pasture at George Square, our spectacular Circus Hub on The Meadows, Underbelly Med Quad and our original Cowgate site with several venues and three buzzing licenced bars. We love Edinburgh – there’s simply no better place to be in August!

If you've got a fantastic show that you'd like to bring to Underbelly, then we'd love to talk to you! Underbelly is committed to programming the best of new writing and new talent. It's what we're most interested in and it's why Underbelly has grown on the Fringe. We're looking for productions that excite and intrigue, and that suit our spaces. We're also, obviously, looking for shows that we feel will interest the audience and sell tickets. We programme across all genres - comedy, theatre, physical theatre, circus, dance, children's shows and music. Find out more
