Free Edinburgh Fringe Festival


Free Edinburgh Fringe Festival

The Free Edinburgh Fringe Festival is an organisation that has been set-up by Laughing Horse Comedy, and operates a series venues at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. These venues are run for free, and are free for performers to use, and for audiences to watch the shows. The aim of the organisation is to combat the high prices that Fringe performers often pay to perform at the Fringe, and also the high ticket prices charged for audiences to watch shows.

Laughing Horse Comedy have organised free venues at the Edinburgh Fringe since 2004, originally in a partnership with 'The Free Fringe', splitting away from that organisation in 2006.

In 2008 there are 2,625 performances of 157 shows that are part of the Free Festival.
