Support Gilded Balloon & our pals!

We are heartbroken that for the first time in our history, Gilded Balloon venues will be closed this August. In order for GB to survive, we need your help.

Support our Crowdfunder Campaign Here

The temporary closure of our year-round comedy venue, the Gilded Balloon Basement, combined with the cancellation of the Fringe has hit us hard. The Gilded Balloon has been a platform for local and international talent for the past 35 years and we need your help to allow us to continue to support our artists, our staff and work positively towards Fringe 2021.

If you are able to do so, please consider donating the cost of a ticket to our crowdfunder page here

There are some great rewards on offer in exchange for your donation, including pal in pink membership and exclusive access to our new online platform, GB offstage. If you can’t donate, you can still help us by spreading the word or sharing the donation link.

We are still determined to bring you a bit of Fringe Magic this August (albeit slightly more online and socially distant!) and we are so excited to share our full Fringe 2020 programme with you here. The majority of the shows & content we have lined up is totally free to watch, so please donate if you can!

Looking towards the future, we are dedicated to being able to welcome back our wider family to Gilded Balloon. We want to continue to be able to provide a platform for performers as well as providing a unique experience to our extended Team GB and our audiences across Scotland and further afield. But we can’t do it without your support.

Thank you pals x
