Managing a venue at the Fringe can be a hugely rewarding experience, but is also a mammoth undertaking for all involved. You may be intending to take over an existing space and use it to create a makeshift theatre; or maybe you already manage your own year-round space. This table discussion will guide you through the A-Z of venue operation before, during and after the festival.
