SHOW APPLICATIONS FOR GREENHOUSE 2020 ARE NOW OPEN - See the Work With Us section for more details. Applications close Friday 29th November.

Welcome to The Greenhouse - the first ever zero-waste performance venue created for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019. Over the course of the festival we welcomed over 2,000 people through our doors, and connected with over 200,000 people online through our website and social media channels. All to spread a very simple message - both creating a zero-waste arts industry, and living a zero-waste lifestlye, is surprisingly easy! Work is underway for the next stages of the project - keep your eyes peeled for us in Edinburgh next year, and hopefully at a few surprise locations inbetween!

All Edinburgh Theatre

"A transept divides the space in two halves, transforming it into the central aisle of a wooden cathedral...an original form of minimalism, where objects are used with creativity and given new meanings."

Fringe Review

"A rather casual conversation at last year’s Edfringe about all the waste it creates led to the question ‘could we do it differently?’ and it turns out we can. Or, at least, BoxedIn Theatre can."

The Scotsman

"This charming new venue is actually an airy greenhouse where the sun...pours through a glass roof."
