The Traverse has an international reputation for its curated
season during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August, but
festivals are also a strong strand of the theatre's work all-year
We host an amazing array of arts events, from dance, puppetry
and animation to the largest performing arts festival for children
and young people in the UK.
Traverse Festival at the Edinburgh Festival
The Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world, taking place
every August for three weeks. Our programme of work during August
has built a reputation for presenting and producing the best new
writing - in all its forms - on the Fringe. The Traverse was, in
fact, founded to keep the spirit of the festivals in August alive
Visual Theatre Festival
Each year, Puppet Animation Scotland's manipulate Visual
Theatre Festival brings powerful pieces of visual theatre and
animation from around the world to Scotland.
Imaginate is the largest and most successful performing arts
festival for children and young people in the UK. The Traverse is
one of the main venues for this week-long festival.
