Venue 13 - Welsh College of Music and Drama at the Edinburgh Festival 2001     

Venue 13 is based in the Harry Younger Hall which is just at the bottom of the Royal Mile. Run by the Welsh College of Music and Drama, many successful productions have taken place in the venue since 1993 when they first came to the Edinburgh Festival.

The company is a non-profit making organisation that exists to promote Welsh and Wales-based talent. From this, many new artists and companies have had great success which follows even once the festival is over.

Great collaborations have come from Venue 13's popularity. The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama performs annually in Venue 13, again with many positive reviews, and attracting well-known directors for their shows. The Ripley Theatre Company and Theatr y Byd have also had very popular shows where a number have been taken on a sell-out world tour.

Amongst the productions this year are:
