Following 49,497 performances of 3,193 shows in 299 venues across Scotland’s capital city, The Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014 has had yet another wonderful year.
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society announced an estimated 2,183,591 tickets had been issued for shows and events in 299 venues across the city, reflecting the continuing popularity and cultural significance of the Fringe. This is 12% more than the overall number of tickets estimated to have been issued last year.
Kath M Mainland, Chief Executive of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society said:
“Once again audiences from Edinburgh, Scotland, the UK and across the globe have been exposed to a completely fantastic cultural experience. Performers, writers and artists have given their all on stages across Edinburgh in a truly international celebration of culture and entertainment.
It’s wonderful that after 67 years the Fringe remains the ultimate destination for audiences to embrace the arts. In a year that places Scotland on the world stage, the Fringe has once again responded by being the greatest explosion of arts and entertainment on the planet.”
Now planning begins for an even bigger and better 2015 Festival Fringe – come here to study in Scotland in August next year and you can experience it for yourself.
