Christmas Search Party

Wrap up warm, grab your fellow elves and head out into the magical streets of Edinburgh for an extra Christmassy, snowcially-distanced treasure hunt this festive season! It's been a tricky year for everyone, and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is keen to spread even more cheer and sparkle than usual. With so much to do, he needs a helper! Not many know that Rudolph has a shy wee cousin - Rabbie the Tartan Nosed Reindeer. He'd be perfect for the job! But first, he must track him down. Through a Christmas-themed trail of puzzles, games and clues and stopping off at iconic Edinburgh landmarks along the way, can you help Rudolph on his quest to find Rabbie? Great fun for all ages, Christmas Search Party is a brand new interactive outdoor experience from the team that brought you Fringe Search Party. Play anytime between Fri 20th Nov - Fri 8th Jan Find out more and register your team here

The temporary closure of our year-round comedy venue, the Gilded Balloon Basement, combined with the cancellation of the Fringe has hit us hard. The Gilded Balloon has been a platform for local and internationa talent for the past 35 years and we need your help to allow us to continue to support our artists, our staff and work positively towards Fringe 2021. We were overwheelmed by the donations and love we received during our Crowdfunder in August. 'The Fringe wouldn't be the same without the Gilded Balloon! - Paul Blom 'The Gilded Balloon has been a popular cultural treasure for 35 years and should be valued as such. The GB team brings so uch light and love into our city and all around the country. Thank you' - Elaine Moran 'Because without Karen, Katy and the Gilded Balloon, comedy as we know it wouldn't be what it is today' - Jenny Eclaire 'Looking towards the future, we are dedicated to being able to welcome back our wider family to Gilded Balloon. We want to continue to be able to provide a platform for performers as well as providing a unique expereince to our extended Team GB and our audiences across Scotland and futher afiled. But we can't do it without your support. Make a donation here Thank you pals x
