Performing Arts Festivals

The Edinburgh Fringe and International Festival are world renowned celebrations of the performing arts. Comedy, Theatre, Stand Up, Poetry, Dance and all other forms of expressive theatre are on show across the entire month of the festival. Literally thousands of performances take place while the influx of people to the city doubles the population. Here you can find out more about the Fringe and International Festivals.
