EdFringe 2024 Registration Opens

Registration for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2024 is now open, but as the Fringe Society points out, it stays open throughout August, so there is no immediate rush.

There are advantages, however, to making an early commitment, as long as you are sure you can go through with it. That includes certainty about the necessary financial backing and having accommodation, which this year might be more difficult than ever as the new letting regulations come into force.

The following dates and deadlines might prove useful.

The first batch of shows for Fringe 2024 will be released for sale from Thursday 22 February. If you want be in this initial tranche, your listing needs to be signed off by Monday 05 February.

The early-bird discount deadline for registration is 17:00 GMT on Wednesday 06 March.

The final deadline for inclusion in the print programme is 17:00 BST on Wednesday 10 April.

Full details are available here on the EdFringe website and any queries can be addressed to [email protected]

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this article has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
