Frolicks at the fringe

The Jewish Chronicle - - JC SPECIAL -

IF YOU haven’t been to the Ed­in­burgh Fes­ti­val Fringe be­fore, the sheer scale of the world’s largest arts fes­ti­val, which takes over the cap­i­tal of Scot­land from Au­gust 1 to 25, can be over­whelm­ing.

With more than 26,000 per­form­ers, in more than 3,100 shows at al­most 300 venues — some at­tract­ing just a hand­ful of peo­ple, some hun­dreds — it em­braces a wide spec­trum of per­for­mances and art forms. Some are free, others are pay-what-you-want, and others are sold out days in ad­vance.
