Show Contacts

Primary show contact

The Primary show contact should be someone who is directly involved in your production and who will be in Edinburgh throughout the show's run. If known, the address and telephone details for this Edinburgh-based period should be provided.

Secondary show contact

You also have the option to enter a secondary contact - we recommend that you do add a secondary contact if you can, as it's useful for us to have an alternative person to contact if your primary contact is unavailable.

Media contact details

The person who you designate as your media contact will be the point of contact for all matters relating to the media and marketing of your show.

They will need to keep in regular contact with the Fringe Media Office and their contact details will also be made available to accredited journalists so please let this person know in advance that they might receive press enquiries.

Please select someone who will have adequate time to commit to working on your press and marketing from May to July and then who can be constantly available (preferably on the ground in Edinburgh) for the duration of your show during the Fringe.

The first few days after arriving in Edinburgh are a particularly busy time for the media contacts so it's best not to nominate someone who will be mainly focused on getting your show up and running.


A promoter is someone with whom you have an agreement to produce your show, take care of the marketing and admin side and who will have access to ticket sales reports from the Fringe Box Office.

If you have a promoter, please select them from the list provided. Please make sure that you only pick a promoter from the list if you have a formal agreement with this company or individual and please note that linking your show with a promoter allows this company or individual access to your ticketing reports.

If you have a promoter who is not on the list, please contact


Touring and Show Development

Touring and Development Contact details

If your show or company is available for work after the Fringe, please give the contact details for the person who should receive information about the development service.  Please note that these contact details will also be given to professionals accredited with our Arts Industry Office, so the named person should be prepared to receive enquiries.


Company Details

What is your company's country of origin?

Please select the country of origin as you would like it to appear online. You should select the country which your company identifies as coming from, regardless of the nationality of individual members. This information will be searchable online but will not be included in the printed programme.

Are any of your company members non-UK nationals, for tax or immigration purposes?

We need to know if any of your company members are resident outside the UK in case they need visas to attend the Fringe. Also, if any members of your company are non-UK residents then you may be liable to pay Foreign Entertainers Tax and could need to submit an FEU form to ensure that they have any potential tax liability calculated correctly.

In how many Edinburgh Festival Fringes has your company taken part?

Enter the number of past Fringes that your company has performed in. If this is your first year then just leave this as 0 (and welcome to the Fringe!)

Which of the following best describes your group?

Please select the option that best describes your group.

How many performers are involved in your show?

Please include performers only.

How many non performers are involved in your show?

A non-performer is anyone involved with your show who is not performing. Please include all backstage crew, producer, writer, director (where appropriate).


The Company List has two purposes:

  1. As a place for you to store and share with us a list of the names and job titles of the people in your company (however this isn't mandatory).
  2. If any non-UK members of your company need a Welcome Letter from the Fringe Society. Depending on what country they are coming from, UK Visas and Immigration will require that all those entering the UK for the purposes of performing at the Fringe, have a Welcome Letter from the Fringe Society to support their visa application or to use at the border when entering the country. More advice for international performers can be found here:

To add people to the Company List then click on the Add company member button and fill out their details. Please note that the Job Title field refers to their role in the company (i.e. director / actor / sound engineer).

If they also need a Welcome Letter, then tick the Welcome Letter box. You will be asked to provide the following details:

Date of Birth
Passport number / ID Card number
The city from which they are travelling to Edinburgh from

These details will be emailed to the Fringe Participant Services Team, who'll then process a welcome letter for those non-UK residents within one to two weeks.

Please note:

  • adding someone to this Company List will not result in them being sent any emails or any other correspondence from us,.
  • theWelcome Letter information saved on this page is only visible to you and to anyone else that you give Show Admin permission to (for more information about permissions, see Invite Another User).
  • you can add people to this Company List at any time, including after show registration, so don't worry if you don't have all the information to hand initially.
