Venue Description

Pleasance Edinburgh opened as part of the 1985 Festival Fringe with two theatres facing onto a deserted courtyard-come-car-park at an unfashionable eastern end of Edinburgh’s Old Town. Thirty seasons later the Pleasance has become one of the biggest and most highly respected venues at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, with an international profile and a network of alumni that reads like a Who’s Who of contemporary comedy, drama and entertainment.


Pleasance Above is an end on theatre space. The main queue is by the main road outside. It Is accessed via lift next to the Box Office, so contacting a member of staff to organise use of the list is essential.
