Edinburgh Festival Fringe 

Sweet Venues are located at two locations, in the thriving Grassmarket at the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, and on Holyrood Road, adjacent to the Royal Mile, with both our venue sites at the heart of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe itself.

We offer high quality programming in high quality venue spaces throughout the festival. You’ll find Sweet Grassmarket located in the Apex Grassmarket Hotel, surrounded by restaurants, shops, bars and cafes. Sweet Holyrood is housed in the beautiful MacDonald Holyrood Hotel, nestled amongst hip cafes and bars, and only a few footsteps from the Royal Mile, and other key historical sites, such as Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament.

From physical theatre & dance to new drama. From world music to mind-reading. Our innovative performance spaces attract a diverse range of shows, allowing Sweet to truly celebrate the spirit of the Fringe.
