About Imagination Workshop Hub

A colourful and classy 5-star hub, new for Edinburgh Fringe 2019 in one of the city’s best luxury hotels and hosting 11 amazing acts, including Fringe favourite, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience.

Curated by Interactive Theatre International (ITI) and based in The Principal Hotel in George Street, Imagination Workshop plays host to 11 shows in a diverse range of programming, billed to appeal to the widest range of ages and tastes from mid-morning to late night.

Hub programmer and ITI business development manager, Jared Harford, says:
‘We’ve got an eclectic and highly attractive programme in a brilliant venue. Shows from Australia and the UK range from high drama and comedy to spoken word, cabaret and children’s circus. And there’s singing, lots of singing. Five of the shows even include food!’

ITI has form in creating, producing and staging successful shows since 1997. This year it returns for its 12th consecutive Edinburgh Fringe with four shows, all of them previous winners of 5-star reviews at the Fringe and around the world. Three of the company’s blockbusters will be hosted in Imagination Workshop, along with eight independent shows, some of them award winning, some completely new:

Faulty Towers The Dining Experience
Only Fools The (cushty) Dining Experience
Confetti & Chaos
Stand Up Poet
Myra
Comfort Food Cabaret
Love/Hate Actually
Cherie – My Struggle
The Dots
Big Tops & Tiny Tots
A Migrant’s Son

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Imagination Workshop Hub are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
