EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FRINGE

EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FRINGE
EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FRINGE

Edinburgh Festival Fringe is one of several festivals held in the City, and the largest. It is an open access event that takes place every August alongside the Edinburgh International Festival and includes comedy, theatre, cabaret, children's shows, circus - pretty much anything - and ANYONE can take part. Edinburgh Festival Fringe began in 1947 when eight groups arrived in Edinburgh hoping to perform at the newly formed Edinburgh International Festival but were refused entry. They went ahead and performed on the fringe of the Festival anyway. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is now the largest arts festival in the world.

Beyond the Fringe (as it were), Edinburgh is immensly buzzy during this festival, with street performers on almost every corner.
