Press & Marketing Office

Open Daily 10am – 8pm
Turn right after entering Teviot, go down one level (if you’re on the same level as the Nightclub, you’ve gone down one too many sets of steps). Turn left at bottom of the stairs and the Press & Marketing Office is straight in front of you (next to lower entrance to Library Bar).

On first arriving at Teviot, after visiting the Management office, please make your way to the Press & Marketing Office, where the press team can help and advise on press, marketing and publication issues and questions.

Our Press Launch will be held on Thursday 4th  August at Teviot. There will be a reception commencing at 5pm in the New Amphion Café with the a preview show featuring a selection of Performers from the Gilded Balloon programme in the Debating Hall starting at 6pm. All the media are invited so it is important that all companies are there. Karen Koren will be programming this show and will approach the performers directly for this year.

Show Press Releases & Images

Please contact David Dey ( / 0131 622 6567) for press releases, press images, our Highlights at Gilded Balloon 2016 release, and any other queries regarding the full line-up of shows at Gilded Balloon this Festival Fringe.

From mid-July, full access will be made available here to a database containing releases and images for our entire programme. In the meantime, please get in touch – we love to hear from you!


This year, press tickets are going digital! Press ticket requests can now be made with this handy online form that allows us to process media requests quicker. If you prefer to do things old school, you can still submit the Press Ticket Request Form to Molly Taylor, our Press Ticketing Assistant. As with previous years, hard copies of the form will be available in the press office. The earlier requests for press tickets come in the better, and it’s one ticket per publication per show, with the exception of children’s shows.

Press tickets for all of our shows (at Teviot, The Counting House and The Museum) can be collected from the Gilded Balloon Press Office in Teviot Row House between 10am-8pm, daily. After 8pm, press tickets can be collected from the main box office inside Teviot.

Postering & Flyering

For full details and deadlines for press and marketing information, please download and read our Publicity & PR Info Pack here.

Due to the historical importance of the venue a VERY strict limitation is placed on where we can display posters. All posters in the venue must be A3 and NO larger posters will be displayed. The Gilded Balloon and the Teviot Management Team work hard to ensure the building is not compromised whilst ensuring maximum exposure for our shows; we will have a mix of posters throughout the building and try to ensure that every show gets equal coverage.
Performers or their agents MUST NOT attempt to put up extra posters / flyers around the venue. This goes for performers, managers, agents, street teams, family members, and any other enthusiastic supporters your show may have.

This enables us to get your posters displayed on the walls throughout the venue and place the flyers in the display stands. If your posters and flyers are late it makes it more difficult to find spaces to hang them.
