Go and See Fund

How to apply

We want to make this fund as straight forward as possible so there is no application form or set of questions. Email Fiona Ferguson, Creative Development Director, explaining which shows you would like to see and what the cost is. Once we have agreed with you what we will cover, you can claim that amount back from us via an Invoice and booking confirmation.

If you are unsure about your request, feel free to contact us beforehand.  

A special note for Children's Festival 2019 


Small Wonders by Punchdrunk is doing a special 3-week run, if you would like to attend please don't buy a public ticket unless you are going with children as the company do not allow adults to attend alone.  There are however, a limited number of tickets for festival delegates with availability between now and 24 May - register as a delegate and we will cover the cost of the ticket.

You can download the list of what's on here, and the delegate programme from here.  

Go & See Fund


Our Go & See Fund is open all year so that those who are involved in making things happen in the young audiences sector in Scotland can see high quality performances, including makers, production staff, composers, designers, and producers. We cover the costs of tickets in the hope that this removes some of the barriers for freelance staff to see work that inspires them.

What we do fund:

  • the cost of tickets to see performances in Scotland
  • travel costs if you live outwith the central belt

What we can’t fund:

  • international visits
  • applications from artists who are not based in Scotland
  • workshops and courses or other professional development activities

Edinburgh International Children's Festival

We are especially keen to make seeing work at the Children's Festival accessible for everyone who works in the sector.  We do this by creating a day-long Professional Development package for the sector each year and by offering Go & See funding to cover the costs of tickets.  If you are based in Scotland and want to attend festival, please get in touch so we can ensure you are registered as a delegate with access to our programme of free delegate events in addition to the performances.
