Edinburgh Festival Fringe thoughts

With about 50,000 performances of over 3,000 shows in almost 300 venues across Scotland’s capital city, The Edinburgh Festival Fringe constantly does its best for visitors and residents alike.

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society  estimates about 3 million tickets are issued for shows and events in venues across the city, reflecting the continuing popularity and cultural significance of the Fringe, with repeated increases year on year.

Kath M Mainland, Chief Executive of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society said:

“Audiences from Edinburgh, Scotland, the UK and across the globe are exposed to a completely fantastic cultural experience.  Performers, writers and artists give their all on stages across Edinburgh in a truly international celebration of culture and entertainment.

 It’s wonderful that after so many years the Fringe remains the ultimate destination for audiences to embrace the arts.  Scotland is on the world stage and the Fringe responds by being the greatest explosion of arts and entertainment on the planet.”

Planning begins early, come here to study in Scotland in August each year and you can experience it for yourself!
