Summerhall Performance & Fringe programme


The programming department looks after the live performance programme at Summerhall, including theatre, dance, physical theatre and performance art.

As well as Summerhall’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe Programme, the department also manages opportunities for artists to make and develop work at Summerhall.


Summerhall Fringe 2021

In normal times, applications for the 2021 Fringe programme would have opened in November 2020, but the cancellation of last year’s festival, and the continued uncertainty over what will be allowed in terms of live performance by August 2021, have affected our timescales for programming.

Artist Development

Summerhall run artist development programmes, aimed at artists basing their practice in Scotland and making new work in music, visual art, theatre or dance, or which crosses those art-form boundaries.
