Buying Tickets

All tickets can be bought online (no booking fees) right up until 5 minutes before the show’s start time. There is no longer any need to collect your tickets after buying online – just head straight to the venue.

Tickets can also be bought in person (card sales only) from our Box Office, upstairs at Sacro Lounge. This bar is about 20m from the venue, also on Spring Gardens. This is open 12:30pm-10:00pm every day of the Fringe. (If there’s no one there, they’ll be back shortly!)

Attending the show

There is no waiting area at the theatre itself, however we have a dedicated waiting area upstairs at nearby Sacro Lounge. You can wait for the show here and get a drink, which you can take into the theatre.

Alternatively, if it’s nice weather, you are welcome to queue outside the venue itself. The doors will open and customers will be admitted 5 minutes before the start-time of each show.

Access

The building we are using is an 18th-century grade-II listed former hotel, which was not accessible by design – but have done our best to make it accessible as we can. We are happy to make any adjustments we can to make the theatre welcoming and comfortable for everyone.

The main entrance has four steps – total height XXcm. A temporary ramp is being built to provide step-free access through this entrance but this may not suit all wheelchair users. There is an alternative entrance at the back of the building which does offer step-free access. However, there are two doors to then reach the theatre and these are XXcm wide. The approach to this entrance also doesn’t have a footpath all of the way so may not be suitable for everyone.

If you use a wheelchair or require step-free access for any other reason, please email boxoffice@underthefringe.com in advance and we’ll confirm details.

There are no toilets in the theatre itself, however toilets and accessible toilets are available in nearby Sacro Lounge for those attending shows at Underground.

Seating inside the theatre is unreserved and seats may be close together or offer little leg room. If you have any concerns please email boxoffice@underthefringe.com and we’ll be happy to make adjustments.

`If for any reason you require a carer or assistant to attend the show with you, we can provide a free ticket for them – do contact us before booking so we can ensure there is space.

There are no official 'relaxed performances' scheduled in our programme, but we are happy to advise on shows that may be suitable. Advice on any content in shows that might cause distress or offence can be viewed on the show’s page in our programme.
