The Fringe didn’t happen at all last year, and with less than 500 shows, this year it’s at a fraction of its normal strength, but for the last couple of years theSpaceUK has been keeping the spirit of the Fringe alive both online and in-person. Since the pandemic hit they’ve organised their own streaming festival, made their debut appearance at the Brighton Fringe and account for about 18% of all the shows in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme this year.

We are delighted, therefore, to award theSpaceUK one of our coveted Bobby Awards in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the Fringe. Launched ten years ago, The Bobby Award recognises achievement that goes above and beyond.
Broadway Baby’s Editor-in-Chief, Richard Beck, handed over the Bobby to theSpaceUK’s Director Charles Pamment in a ceremony held at Surgeon’s Hall today.
