Why perform with us this Fringe?

Gilded Balloon is a family run business with over 35 years experience as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The family spirit is felt by all of our performers, staff and audiences which results in our loyal following of performers coming back each year to be part of the programme each year. As well as returning artists, we actively search for new hidden talents to support and nurture during their first time at the Fringe.

If that sounds like the type of venue you’d like to be at this Fringe – Apply Below!
