I Hate Children Children's Show


How do you find the best show at the fringe?

Directions to the top children's show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012!

This year we are performing at the Pleasance.  This is a new venue for us but it's easy to find.  The Pleasance one of the biggest and best theater groups at the festival. It is a giant space with dozens of theaters inside.  The Beside Theater is next to the courtyard.  The Pleasance is named after the road it's on which has the same name.  We have compiled directions and information about finding us from different parts of Edinburgh.  You can also hit the map button bellow. This will take you right to the map page of the Pleasance website. 

Be the best looking kid on the block!

There are T Shirts, Magic Tricks, CDs, and DVDs available after the show.  We will be around to sign autographs and take photos.  Stop by and say hi.

Travelling... It's always best to walk.

You can walk to the show from just about anywhere in Edinburgh but give yourself some time:
