Edinburgh Festival and Fringe

Edinburgh Festival and Fringe  - Take One Media

Discover how we can help you get noticed during the world's largest and busiest annual arts festival!


Our experience, knowledge and enthusiasm are second to none

EAE (now part of Take One Media) was originally set up by arts and tourism organisations in Edinburgh and, for the past 30 years, we have maintained close links with arts and cultural events, venues and activities across our capital city.

We are the official publicity distributor for the Edinburgh Fringe, Edinburgh International Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival and Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival. We also provide print distribution services for Edinburgh Military Tattoo, Assembly Rooms, Pleasance, Gilded Balloon, Traverse Theatre and many others.

In addition, we have managed leaflet and poster marketing campaigns for literally thousands of Fringe shows, large and small.

Our philosophy mirrors the founding spirit of the Fringe – to inform, assist, enable and excite.


Essential Fringe

Our standard services for leaflet, brochure and poster display throughout the Edinburgh area.

We will distribute your print to as many as possible of our hundreds of authorised display sites, before and during the Festival period. Display sites include pubs, cafes, restaurants, shops and more.

For even wider coverage you can choose to augment your campaign with some of our Premium and Support services. See ‘How We Operate‘ for more information.

Print Recycling

After the festival our staff remove all leftover and out of date print for recycling. This is quite a task when you consider we distribute an average of 100,000 posters, 1 million leaflets and 3/4 million brochures!

We are unable to absorb these costs and so apply an additional Recycling Tax of £15 per booking.
