Edinburgh Previews

The information below is for theatre companies looking for a space to stage their Edinburgh or Camden preview performances. We are also happy to consider other productions (under 60 minutes in length) if they would like to be a part of our preview season!


Dates & Times

Our Edinburgh preview season will run from 13th July through to August 3rd. We have slots available at 7:00pm and 9:00pm. Companies are not restricted to one performance, single or multiple performances of the same show may be requested.



Our usage fee is £180 per individual show with your company taking 100% of the box office (less Ticketsource fees). This fee INCLUDES three hours of tech time with a Drayton technician, as well as a Duty Manager who will cover Front of House and operate your show (if you do not have your own operator).


How many people does the theatre seat?

Our fixed raked seating seats 51 people. All performances have allocated seating when booking. 


Is there any small print?

Companies are expected to market their own productions - we will of course support all companies on social media, our website, and monthly e-newsletter, but more will need to be done to bring an audience!

You will need to use our choosen box office provider. There will be no VAT on ticket sales (unless your company is VAT registered.)

All companies are required to use our branding.

All tickets for Edinburgh preview performances will be set at a flat rate of £12.
