About Venue 13

Since 1996, Venue 13 has been bringing the best of emerging talent from Wales and the world to the Edinburgh Fringe. With a real focus on theatre, but also contemporary dance and physical performance, Venue 13 prides itself on offering the complete venue experience with every show receiving full production support and resources, making it more than just simply “fringe” theatre. Our audiences come back for more, so do the theatre companies. Find out more about us by getting in contact.

From our headquarters in Cardiff, the venue is an initiative run by the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, and acts as professional training for our stage managers, who use the intense experience of putting on over 150 performances in three weeks as part of their professional portfolio. The Venue also stages several performances by emerging artists from the College, including the College’s own Richard Burton Company.
