Please let us know if there is any extra information that will make delivering your venue boards easier for us, such as days and times of access to a property, alternative address, etc.

Desired number of venue maps

We print an official map of all venues which you can give away to audience members in your venue. These are pocket-sized, fold-out maps that are taken away and help audience members navigate their way through the city. They are also useful to members of your staff when helping to explain directions to customers in your venue. There is no charge for these, but we might limit quantities to meet demand.

We can supply Fringe-branded lanyards for venue staff to attach their passes to. These are neck ribbons, with an empty plastic pouch to display any passes your staff/companies might have. They cost £1 each.

Venue boards, maps and lanyards can all be delivered to your venue.
