Support Gilded Balloon

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.

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.

We were overwhelmed by the donations and love we received during our Crowdfunder in August.

  • The Fringe wouldn’t be the same without the Gilded Balloon! – Paul Blom
  • The Gilded Balloon has been a popular cultural treasure for 35 years and should be valued as such. The GB team brings so much light and love into our city and all around the country. Thank you – Elaine Moran
  • Because without Karen, Katy and the Gilded Balloon, comedy as we know it wouldn’t be what it is today – Jenny Eclair

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
