‘I had a fantastic time with Just The Tonic this year… I very much hope to bring another show (or maybe even shows!) to the festival next year and would love to be part of the JTT family again. Everyone worked so hard and smiled through the rubbish and knew how to enjoy the good times! Felt very well looked after and supported.’ Trudi Stevens (producer of Wilfredo 2012)

What is Just the Tonic?
It is a unique entertainment experience during the world's largest arts festival. We have 2 venues, with 7 performance spaces: The Caves, situated within a maze of cavernous rooms below Edinburgh's South Bridge, the venue is a tourist attraction in it's own right. Part of the space that we don't use is even part of the legendary Edinburgh Ghost Tours. Winner of The Best Small Venue in The Scottish Events Awards, 2009. We have now added The Tron, a single perfomrance space on Hunter Square, right next to the Royal Mile. Plus, new for 2014, is The Community Project on Candlemaker Row with an additional 2 spaces and our own outside bar area
We are now programming theatre, comedy, music and childrens shows for 2014

The rest of the time
We have been running Just the Tonic Comedy Club in Nottingham for 21 years, have been taking shows to Edinburgh for 10 years, and in 2012 we created Just the Tonic Comedy Club in Leicester. We book venues, do tours and generally promote stuff. We know what we are doing!
Why Come to Just the Tonic in 2014?
As well as providing a professional environment to perform in, Just the Tonic in Edinburgh is small enough to feel that you are part of something, part of the fringe. During the year we run Just the Tonic Comedy Club in Nottingham and Leicester. We know about promoting and producing shows. We are not just here for the festival. A well renowned set up, Just the Tonic at The Caves provides an established venue but you won't get lost in the machine of Edinburgh. Have a look at our spaces, maybe call Darrell for a chat and apply online.
