One of the most famous art festival in the world
This art festival takes place in the city centre of Edinburgh during the month of August. It features an average of over 3,000 shows from different countries around the world in more than 250 venues, ranging from pubs, public buildings, churches, theatres and the streets.
The Fringe was established in 1947 as an alternative to the Edinburgh International Festival when eight theatre companies turned up uninvited and performed their plays taking advantage of the large crowds gathered in the city.
Everything related to Comedy, Dance, Cabaret, Children’s shows, Music, Musicals and Opera, Theatre and Circus has its time and space in the Fringe.
