The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is the largest arts festival in the world and the Pleasance Theatre Trust has been a staple since 1985. At the 2023 festival we operated 30 venues across 3 sites, bringing audiences of over 600,000 and presenting 5,723 performances. Each year we recruit a huge team of volunteers who play a vital role in the day to day running of the sites. In this workshop you’ll learn more about the kinds of opportunities and training available through the programme, as well as learning more about how the festival as a whole operates.
This session will be hosted by Laura Schofield from the Pleasance Theatre Trust.
This session is step free, and accessible to wheelchair users. Our team are here to help, go to the info desk in the registration foyer and one of our team will escort you to this session via the accessible route. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the session starts, to ensure you have plenty of time to get there.
Booking Rules: Please book no more than two workshops or tours, plus one Main Stage Event. This will allow you to get to sessions on time and explore our Exhibitor Marketplace.
In Person Waiting List: If the RSVP for this event is closed, you will be able to join the ‘on the day’ waitlist which will operate at the session venue in case of any last minute cancellations. Just come to the venue and a volunteer will direct you to where you need to queue. This will operate on a first come first served basis, and will not guarantee entry.
