Currently hosting shows downstairs at City Screen Basement, upstairs in the charming 16th century public house The Black Swan and at The Crescent Community Venue.

We aim to showcase the best in new ‘up-and-coming’ performers alongside established national and international performers, many of whom you might have seen on Radio, TV or winning awards at the Edinburgh Fringe festival.
