It's sadly now all over for 2015, but we will be back for another year, our 13th year at the Edinburgh Fringe, in August 2016!  (August 4th to 28th)....

In 2015 we had another massive programme of Free shows, that were all part of Edinburgh's Fringe Festival.... with  shows running from August 1st to 30th - the first five days where a brand new Children's festival the the Free Sisters venue, to tie in with the School Holidays, that will also be back in 2016...

Use the calendar and search tools to the left to have a look through what was in our 2015 programme.

Our line-up featured some top names in Comedy, Theatre, Cabaret, Children's shows, Music and much more rocking Edinburgh for these four weeks, plus of course the very best we can find in new talent. And of course, it's was all for free!

In 2015 our shows and performers won or where nominated for numerous awards, an amazing recognition of our programming.... and we hope to do just as well in 2016. 

We also had a hugely critically acclaimed Fringe last year, with over a bucket load of five star reviews shows and even more four star reviewed shows - which proves our free shows are a sign of top quality Fringe shows, while we let performers and audiences experience the freedom of the Fringe, with a chance to experiment and enjoy. Just what the Fringe should be!

For performers, our applications for 2016 will open in late December, to register your interest in performing with us email us on admin@laughinghorse.co.uk  and check our our performers area for information on what we do, and how we do it.

Do check out our programme from 2015, and keep your diary from for August 2016 for our next year of shows. We'll also be in Brighton in May, as part of the Laughing Horse's programme, and their are plans afoot for out first international free festival in 2016!

Running The Free Festival costs a lot of money... some of this money is recouped through sponsorship, advertising and our comedy courses... If you would like to contribute and help keep the venues free for acts and audiences, please click button above
