Your Visit

Our Underbelly venues for 2016 were located over FIVE main festival hubs, all within a 10-minute walk from each other in Edinburgh's central Old Town: Cowgate (Fringe venue number 61), George Square (Fringe venue number 300), Circus Hub (Fringe venue number 360), Potterrow (Fringe venue number 358) and Med Quad (Fringe venue number 302). These five sites played host to a jam-packed programme of theatre, comedy, cabaret, circus and family entertainment, as well as our buzzing bars and places to sit, grab a bite and soak up the festival atmosphere! Watch this space for details of our 2017 venues!

As Bristo Square & McEwan Hall undergo redevelopment, the iconic Udderbelly veune remained in nearby George Square, where it continued to host the best in comedy, circus and more.

New in 2015 was our exciting venture, Underbelly's Circus Hub, the first ever major venue dedicated to Circus at the Edinburgh Fringe, with a first class international programme of 12 shows, which returned for an even bigger programme in 2016! Read more here.
