The circus is coming to town!

3rd Aug 2015

You've probably heard all about Underbelly's brand new Circus Hub on The Meadows this year, and we hope you're just as excited about it as we are! For the first time ever, Fringe-goers can experience a first-class line-up of international circus with 12 shows, including two European premieres, four UK premieres and five Fringe premieres. 

It's all starting to take shape on The Meadows - here's a sneaky peek at this brand new venue!


Here's the shell of the smaller big top tent, The Beauty. The two tents - The Lafayette & The Beauty - are named after one of Edinburgh's greatest historical circus figures, The Great Lafayette, and his loyal dog Beauty.


It's still only just taking shape, but already you can tell that Circus Hub will be one of the Fringe's most vibrant venues ever!


Here's the incredible programme!


And here's the larger big top in progress - it's the 750-seat Lafayette!

Shows in the Circus Hub begin this Friday, so come on down and experience the most exciting circus programme ever to hit the Fringe!
