Celebrating 27 years at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016
Welcome to Universal Arts. We are international producers, agents and promoters based in Edinburgh. We programme and manage two prestigious Edinburgh festival venues located in the heart of the city – the NEW TOWN THEATRE & HILL STREET SOLO THEATRE.
We have been running venues since 1990. We showcase Scottish and international work and promote it to visiting international theatre and festival programmers as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the biggest and most important performing arts trade fair in the world.
Over the last twenty-six festivals, we have introduced literally thousands of artists from around the world to UK audiences. We have brought companies to Edinburgh from over 40 countries, making audiences laugh or cry but always striving to create a first-rate theatre experience.
Our original aim was to assist international theatre companies to develop their international audiences by showcasing work at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Now, in addition to our work in Edinburgh we are a world-wide agency, production company and arts consultancy.
