Our Award Winners
Every year we scout out the best Fringe shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to bring home and be the headliner of our own HST Adelaide Fringe! The award is the only of it's kind that allows a company from Edinburgh to tour their show to the Adelaide Fringe and has brought us some fantastic acts over the years. From Henry Naylor to Molly Taylor and everyone in between the award has uncovered some of HST's favourite artists.
Unfortunately due to COVID-19 the 2020 Edinburgh Festival Fringe was forced to cancel, and the 2020 Holden Street Theatres' Edinburgh Fringe Award was unable to be presented. However the Ed Fringe will be back, in 2021 the award will look a little different and will this time support a recorded show to be screened in our HST on Screen program for the 2022 Adelaide Fringe! Head to our Criteria Page for a 2021 Holden Street Theatres' Edinburgh Fringe application form.
In the meantime check out our past winners or head the Holden Street Theatres' Adelaide Fringe Award page to checkout our local 2021 winners!

Our award invites a production from the Edinburgh Fringe to perform at Holden Street Theatres in Adelaide, South Australia, as the headline show of the following year of our Adelaide Fringe program.
Holden Street Theatres is known as “The Home of Theatre” with a strong loyal following and a reputation for presenting great work and looking after its artists and patrons.
Productions are shortlisted by the Artistic Director of Holden Street Theatres, Martha Lott, along with a panel of international producers and arts practitioners. The work is selected on artistic merit, production values, touring possibilities, venue compatibility and marketing viability. We see work from all genres and venues across Edinburgh, and accept applications and information from individuals, producers, and venues in advance.
