The Fringe

edfringe.jpgI’m off to Edinburgh (Scotland) for a week for the Festival Fringe – largest arts festival in the world. Fringe 2007 features 31,000 performances of 2,050 shows (made up of Theatre, Comedy, Music, Children’s, Musicals & Opera, Dance & Physical Theatre, Exhibitions and Events) in 250 venues.
The Fringe story began in 1947, when the Edinburgh International Festival was launched. It was seen as a post-war initiative to re-unite Europe through culture, and was so successful that it inspired more performers than there was room for. Hope the weather will be nice, and I manage to pack some sightseeing as well as enjoying the festivities :)
