ZOO Venues are among the most lively, inspiring, and unpredictable venues at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Our 2012 programme featured nearly 50 shows, representing the best in new writing, dance, cabaret, comedy and classic theatre, and underlined ZOO Venues’ position as the ideal place to showcase your talent in a professional and supportive environment.
The company operates two venues – The ZOO and ZOO Southside – both located close to the High Street and featuring two and three performances spaces respectively.
Located close to the Fringe Office and literally one minute from the Pleasance Courtyard, The ZOO is at the heart of the Festival. Two exceptional studio spaces provide the perfect setting for fringe theatre.
ZOO Southside is one of the Fringe's most established venues, located on busy Nicolson Street. It features a beautiful main house, with one of the largest stages on the Fringe, ideal for dance and physical theatre, plus an intimate cabaret bar and excellent studio. The venue has a reputation for high quality dance work and children's theatre.
