Pitch Up at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, August 2017

Pitch Up – our welcoming gathering of theatre makers, producers and venue programmers – will take place at CanadaHub @ King’s Hall (Venue 73) 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 our event page at summerhall.co.uk.
