SHEDINBURGH Fringe Festival, the global shed-sation of 2020 is back for another packed edition of the best Fringe theatre, comedy, music, spoken word plus exciting new strands including a brand new Originals script series and SHEDx talks from famous faces, renowned writers and experts from the world of culture. SHEDINBURGH also sees new partners VAULT Creative Arts, producers of VAULT Festival, come on board as festival co-producers alongside Francesca Moody Productions and Popcorn Group.
This year SHEDINBURGH will host a four-strand programme of world-class entertainment:
SHEDINBURGH MAIN PROGRAMME: A stellar programme of shed-based versions of seminal fringe favourites from the last decade plus old, new and unseen work from Fringe stars and comedians whose careers were launched at the Fringe.
SHEDINBURGH NEWCOMERS: The Edinburgh Fringe Festival has historically been the launch pad of as yet unknown artists who go on to become global superstars like Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Trevor Noah and Flight of the Conchords. The Newcomers programme will feature work from some of the most exciting up and coming artists who you might have discovered at the Fringe, except this time, audiences will be discovering them in the shed. Artists have been handpicked in partnership with co-producers VAULT Creative Arts who have long been at the vanguard of emerging talent through their annual London Festival – VAULT Festival.
SHEDINBURGH ORIGINALS: A series of special one-off short pieces and original work created for the shed by some of the most exciting and high profile talent to come out of Edfringe.
SHEDx: The festival nod to TEDx, a series of free to watch 10 minutes talks from key industry stakeholders and talent around the theme of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. SHEDx will inspire, educate, reminisce and advocate for change.
All shows and events will be performed live and streamed globally for one night only from two sheds at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh and Soho Theatre in London from Tuesday 3rd August to Monday 30th August.
