A unique Fringe venue. It's the smallest one in Edinburgh and the world – and it's also a chicken coop. Yes, you did read that correctly, it's a chicken coop. There may be chickens too, but Fringe audiences often scare them away and they hide in the bushes or run away. If you find our chickens please bring them back, they get scared wandering the streets of Edinburgh.

Food and drink from the neighboring bar can be bought into the coop. No eggs though, the chickens don't like that. And no trying to sneak them in. The chickens know.
