Gilded Balloon’s Fringe Venues

Here’s all the info on where you can find us during the Fringe, and what we’ve got on offer at each of the Gilded Balloon venues. We would encourage you to walk or catch public transport to our venues – not only will it save you time and money instead of looking for a parking space, but it’s also kinder on the planet, and that’s always a good thing.

 Aside from catching some of the hottest up-and-coming acts in comedy (and maybe some more familiar faces…) in one of the 3 performance spaces, Top, Bottom and Bothy, you can grab a drink at the bar and cafe, something to eat from one of the food stalls, sit back and enjoy in the sunny courtyard, or if it’s a bit dreich, in the lovely Market building, because we are in Scotland after all.
