Pitch Up at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, August 2017

We’re pleased to announce that the next Pitch Up – our welcoming gathering of theatre makers, producers and venue programmers – will take place at Summerhall @ The King’s Hall, Edinburgh on Tuesday 22 August 2017, 10.00am-12.00pm as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

What is Pitch Up?
Pitch Up is made up of 5minute pitches – and 1minute elevator pitches – aimed at sharing new ideas and encouraging the connections to make them happen. Pitches come from theatre makers, producers and venues in a spirit of openness and collaboration, ensuring Pitch Up is a valuable event whether you’re pitching or not.

So if you’re an artist, producer or venue involved in making theatre, and you’re looking for partners for a new project, Pitch Up is for you.

Book your free place through edfringe.com.

What is a pitch?
A snappy presentation about an idea that you want to make happen. They’re typically spoken with accompanying visuals but they can also incorporate performance, props or handouts; whatever helps you to get the idea across. It’s usually better to think about them as a conversation-starter rather than a hard sell.

Something to pitch?
Our call for pitches is now open.

We’re interested in early stage ideas from theatre makers – our Edinburgh Pitch Up is not a market place for existing shows but rather an opportunity to step back and talk about what you want to do next.

Complete and return our application form by 12.00pm, Friday 07 July 2017.
