Edinburgh Fringe Dates - Friday 2nd - Monday 26th Aug 2019

Main Programme Deadlines
When you register your show you will need a small image - a small square roughly 100px x 100px. The most successful entries will have artwork in the programme which matches their finished design. 
Wednesday 13th March, 5pm  - Programme "Early Bird Discount" Deadline (£295)
Get your fringe show booked in before this date for a £100 discount on the full price. 
Wednesday 10th April, 5pm - Final Programme Deadline (£393)
Final chance for getting in the official programme through Edfringe.
It is worth noting that some venues submit using a different system, and may have slightly different dates than advertised.  

General Print Deadlines
In general, you should give 7-10 days for a print turnaround and delivery, often depending on where you order from, and how much demand there is at the time. Therefore a realistic final fringe print deadline would be 22nd/23rd July
Of course, the more prepared you are the better - this deadline gives no room for re-ordering print for typos or print errors. The Fringe's own guide suggests you get your shows's marketing materials designed and printed in April. Each shows timetable will differ, but April and May are an excellent time to get your marketing done - especially to get images out online and get those pre-sales in.
