The Leith Volcano

Fri 04 Aug 2017 to Sat 26 Aug 2017

The Leith Volcano | Venue 183 | 119 Constitution Street, Edinburgh, EH6 7AE

Our new 2017 Fringe venue is a partnership with The Biscuit Factory/Youth Juice Creative. It is a beautiful but derelict church in the heart of Leith, brought back to life for the month of August. The Leith Volcano is a unique space for ambitious independent work at the Fringe.

Volcano will be presenting Seagulls alongside work by companies including Cryptic, Impermanence Dance Theatre, Figs in Wigs and Powys Dance, plus a fantastic programme of Music and Light events (with beer) from DECAGRAM and food by BARNACLES & BONES. You can get tickets for all events HERE.
