Virgin money street events


Virgin Money Street Events - free every day of the Fringe.

During the Fringe, the Society manages two vibrant street performance spaces in the heart of the city: The High Street on the Royal Mile (between Cockburn Street and George IV Bridge) and the Mound Precinct. These spaces become the focus of the carnival atmosphere that takes over Edinburgh in August, with thousands of locals and tourists mingling to see the spectacular acts that travel from all over the world to entertain the crowds.

  • Free previews of hundreds of Fringe shows across four stages
  • World class street shows, buskers and entertainers of every talent imaginable
  • Arts and crafts markets

Our dedicated Virgin Money Street Events team schedule stages and other street performance areas, as well as organising two Arts and Crafts markets. The team provides the infrastructure and necessary permissions for this spectacular event to take place. They ensure the street performance areas are a safe and fun, family environment with equal opportunity for all to participate.


Street Events have now finished for 2017.
