Money for CoDI 2018

We don’t expect you to cover the full costs of your Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas (CoDI) show, but we do ask you to make a contribution to the costs of marketing your show. Additionally, if you are from a university that isn’t in Edinburgh (and therefore isn’t from the Beltane partnership), we ask you to pay more to cover the administrative costs incurred by the University of Edinburgh in arranging the shows. The costs are the same whether you perform your show once or twice.

  • Fee for shows featuring staff and students from universities in Edinburgh (The University of Edinburgh: Heriot-Watt University: Edinburgh Napier University; Queen Margaret University): £200
  • Fee for shows featuring staff and students from other organisations: £450

All fees must be paid by 5pm on Wednesday 21st March 2018.

How do I pay?

If possible, please pay by credit card using ePay here. Please email to confirm that you’ve paid.

If you need to pay by invoice, please contact Sarah Anderson ( We will need a purchase order from your organisation in order to invoice you.

Where can I get funding from?

It is not our intention that anyone should use personal funds to pay their registration fee. Possible sources of funding are:

  • Any research grants on which you are an investigator or staff member
  • Departmental or university-level funds for public engagement with research, knowledge exchange, marketing, communications or Continuing Professional Development (the latter because there is a training and development component to CoDI for performers)
  • Learned societies and professional bodies (you may need to ask your institution to underwrite the cost in case your application isn’t successful)

But don’t you make enough money from the ticket sales?

Not at the Edinburgh Fringe! Any profits from the ticket sales stay with the producer and cover the losses incurred during the first few years of developing CoDI. No money comes back to the University of Edinburgh (which is the Beltane partner institution organising CoDI).
