Shows at fringe down on last year
More than 3,000 shows are being staged during this summer’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe – down slightly on last year which marks a levelling-out of its rapid growth in the last decade.
Organisers said there will be 50,266 performances of 3,269 shows in 294 venues across the Scottish capital.
This year’s festival theme is ‘Defying Convention’ and it was officially launched on Portobello beach yesterday.
