Brand new in 2015 and returning for 2016, Underbelly's Circus Hub is the first ever major venue dedicated to circus at the Edinburgh Fringe.

In 2015, the venue brought a first-class international circus programme of 12 shows, which included two European premieres, four UK premieres, five Fringe premieres, and featured artists from across the globe, including Belgium, France, Czech Republic, Australia, Canada and Palestine. It also showcased the best in homegrown circus with five shows from the UK. It returns in 2016 for an even bigger programme of the best circus from around the world!

Located on The Meadows on the city's Southside, Underbelly's Circus Hub is made up of two big tops, the Lafayette (750 seats) and The Beauty (250 seats). The two venues are named after one of the world’s most famous circus performers and illusionists, The Great Lafayette and his dog Beauty, who famously both died in Edinburgh in 1911.

These venues provide the opportunity to present spectacular and technically ambitious circus work of a level that has never been seen before at the Fringe, in the heart of Edinburgh.
