Edinburgh Fringe Festival Adventure

Edinburgh, Scotland - August 12-15 2025

On August 12 to 15 2025, we will take 40 people to experience the magnificent chaos that is the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. We'll take over a beautiful 18th-century castle outside Edinburgh with connections to Mary Queen of Scots, so that we have an oasis of calm to return to after each day’s cornucopia of performances. We'll use our arts-media network to get tickets to shows that stimulate and intrigue, but we'll also make time for spontaneity, for participants to find and drop into some of the off-beat, unique offerings that make the fringe so special. Our team has designed this adventure to balance the guided and critically filtered with the utterly unpredictable, so participants experience the festival at its best.


For the fourth year we’re bringing together a creative gathering of hand-picked VOYAGERS from around the world, with a range of activities designed to build strong friendships. We’ll experience up to five hand-picked shows a day, and will then savour the day’s adventures over dinner at some of Edinburgh’s most charismatic restaurants. After that, you can choose to retire to the castle for late-night games and storytelling – or continue to make merry until the last shuttle home.

We’re also bringing some of the festival’s most gifted visiting artists to our castle to connect and create with us. Throughout the adventure, participants will enjoy a VOYAGERS take on the Edinburgh lifestyle — from a hike up Arthur’s Seat to a guided whisky tasting, stargazing and our famous “walking podcast”.

Read feedback from participants in our last Edinburgh Fringe Festival Adventure.

A completely genuine and sincere thank you — such an amazing and magical week in Edinburgh. Really, one of the most unique and enjoyable experiences I’ve ever had the privilege of being a part of. I have lived a week in only 3 nights, and yet it passed in the blink of an eye. Your ability to bring a group of people together, as people and not job titles, and in just the right mix, was incredible.
