The Courtyard doors may be closed this summer but the Pleasance Theatre Trust are already thinking ahead to 2021.

To mark the first day of what would have been the 2020 Edinburgh Fringe, they are giving one lucky Fringe fan a chance to win a pair of free tickets to every show at the Pleasance next August.

All you need to do is enter their extra special raffle, as part of their Crowdfunder campaign, to be in with a chance of winning the Pleasance Golden Ticket!

One lucky winner and a friend will have the opportunity to see hundreds of shows next year at the Pleasance in Edinburgh, including their annual Opening Gala.

The first-class treatment doesn’t stop there: the winners will even have their own dedicated member of the Pleasance Team overseeing all their reservations and recommendations.

The winner will also receive exclusive access to Brooke’s Club for the duration of the festival. This is the ultimate VIP Fringe experience, for only £5!

A chance to unlock the doors and peek behind the curtains, visit all of Pleasance’s amazing venues across Edinburgh: start your day with coffee and breakfast at the Dome then do lunch at the EICC, pop by the Courtyard for drinks and pack in as many shows as you can!

This is your opportunity to ensure your Fringe 2021 is as full of pure imagination as it possibly can be.

There is no limit on the number of £5 raffle tickets you can purchase and each one counts as an entry into the prize draw. One winner will be selected at random in September, once the Crowdfunder campaign has ended. Good luck!
