Before diving into our Traverse Festival content we'd like to invite you to support our work.

As a registered Scottish charity (SC002368), we depend on donations to keep our spaces and programme alive, connecting us to audiences in Edinburgh and around the world.

If you're able to, we invite you to donate the price you'd usually pay for a single ticket to an 'in person' Traverse Festival performance at our Edinburgh venue - and for that, you'll get your Traverse Festival Pass which gives you access to all events in the Traverse Festival programme.

Unable to donate at the moment? No problem - the Traverse Festival is for everyone, we’ll just need a few bits of information from you to be able to send you a link. Scroll down to the bottom of this page and complete the sign up form.

How do I get my pass?

  1. Select the ticket type that normally applies to you from the options below to make an equivalent donation - if you're planning on experiencing the events with multiple members of your household, you can include more people by setting your own donation amount in the 'I'd like to donate a different amount' box below. Or if you're unable to donate at this time, simply complete the short sign up form at the bottom of this page.
  2. After completing your donation, you'll receive an email confirming receipt of your Festival Pass donation via email. If using the sign up form, a message will appear on your screen once you've submitted your details, letting you know that we've received your information.
  3. Within an hour of your donation or submitting the sign up form below, you'll receive an email from us containing your personal Traverse Festival Pass access link. Don't delete this email, you'll need the link to access all of the Traverse Festival shows and events which are currently available to watch, listen to or read.
