Forest Fringe

Trade fair


Forest Fringe is an organisation run collaboratively by three artists based in the UK. Together it creates festivals, hosts residencies and occasionally commissions new work as a way of helping to support a large and diverse community of independent artists.

It is best known for the free venue it has run at the Edinburgh Festival for the past 10 years, creating space for new and experimental work at the world’s largest arts festival.
Forest Fringe has been the recipient of two Herald Angels, a Scotsman Fringe First, The Peter Brook Empty Space Award and a Total Theatre Significant Contribution Award.

In the press

“Forest Fringe is all the things that theatre can be: messy, intensely live and alive, contrary and surprising, sometimes astonishing and often quite badly behaved”
The Guardian

“Like being a kid let loose in a sweet shop full of tantalising choices… Much better than sweets. You can gorge on Forest Fringe and never get sick, or tired of the flavours”
The Herald
