EastEnd Cabaret opening the Underbelly launch event at the 2012 Fringe Festival
If you are currently in Edinburgh, you will hardly have been able to escape the fact that the Edinburgh Festival Fringe kicks off today.
Why would you want to escape it, for that matter? For a month a year, we are treated to the biggest open access arts festival in the world, with its seemingly endless stream of top class entertainment, right on our doorstep!
Sure, it gets busy. Between the sea of street performers, the doubling of the city population, and the 24-7 festival revelers, you could be forgiven for occasionally getting the impulse to lock yourself in a dark room during the month of August.
But that’s what the rest of the year is for.
August is for arts, comedy, cabaret, late licenses and lots of laughs! And if you are strapped for cash, there is always the Free Fringe, with loads of fun, free shows to choose from.
So, hope you all have a fantastic Friday evening and a great start to the 2013 Fringe – we think it’s going to be a good’un!
