The 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Preview at SHP

June 10, 2015

It’s that time of year where the Edinburgh Preview returns to South Hill Park featuring an array of wonderfully tear-inducing comedians who will knock your socks off with exceptional entertainment, and inspirational theatre companies who will dazzle you with drama.

The preview kicks off on Friday July 3 with ‘unassuming comic genius’ Addy Van Der Borgh performing his sketch ‘The Jest of Argument’ and legend in the world of comedy Mick Ferry with ‘Staring balefully with his hands on his hips’ gracing our stage at the Cellar Bar.

The following week (Friday July 10) sees emerging comedy talent Joe Lycett with his ‘Work in Progress’ sketch and funnyman Geoff Norcott with ‘Man of Spiel’. Friday July 17 welcomes The Independent’s ‘Face To Watch 2015’ Dane Baptise with his brand new show ‘Reasonable Doubts’ and award-winning Phil Nichol with ‘Work in Progress.’

Make a final date with Edinburgh Preview cellar comedy on Friday July 24 with the spell-binding Markus Birdman and his ‘Grimm Realities’ and the ‘best mainstream female comedian since Sarah Millican’ Angela Barnes with ‘Raggy Doll.’


Four weeks of outstanding comedy from high quality talents are guaranteed this summer.

On Thursday July 23 you may recognise this familiar pair. As seen on BBC 1’s W1A and Radio 4’s The Casebook of Max and Ivan, award-winning double act Max and Ivan appear in our Studio Theatre with their sketch ‘The End’. A must see, extraordinary new show that will leave you beaming.

Finally, we can’t host the Edinburgh Preview without a dose of drama. ‘Fringe Sell-Out’ company Squint return to South Hill Park this summer with Molly, a warped and thrilling journey that follows the mind of a sociopath. This production will leave you hanging off the edge of your seat on Thursday July 23.



On Wednesday July 29 and Thursday July 30, Hookhitch Theatre (one of our Associate Companies) present two shows in our Cellar: Phantasmagoria and My Friend Peter. In Phantasmagoria the worlds of horror and fantasy collide in a sensory journey of the imagination as once-extraordinary entertainer Charles Alderdice attempts to bring Lewis Carroll’s darkest work to life.

Straight after this performance, you can step into the captivating world of Beatrix Potter with foot-stomping folk musical, My Friend Peter. The production follows one of the most celebrated authors of children’s literature on her journey through her loves, losses, struggles and triumphs. Watch her iconic tale come to life in during this preview season in our Cellar Bar.
