ilBff elcome to the 1990 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, now in its 44th ■ W year and undoubtedly one of the wonders of the theatrical and artistic world. It is well known for its innovation, sparkle, magnetism and ability to make people go out and enjoy themselves, and this year's Companies and their productions will rank among the greats. It is the biggest Fringe in history, 9,000 local, national and international performers from as close as Invergorden and Liverpool to as distant as Venice, Buffalo, Honolulu, Mombasa and Tokyo are in Edinburgh ^ \ and ready to entertain you morning, noon and night. “ \ We have designed the Programme to tempt you and provide an informative and fully comprehensive guide to all that is on. Fear not its size, search for your favourites, take a few risks but above all, enjoy the opportunity of seeing some of the best in music, children's shows, comedy, visual arts and a' great deal more. Take a walk through the streets and enjoy the Fringe for free as buskers jostle for your attention or drop into any of the 140 venues, you will be surprised how much fun it can be. Be an eavesdropper and listen to people in queues, talk to your friends, read what the papers say, pick up a 'Daily Diary', scan 'Fringe Find' and you will never be at a loss for

something to do. Have a very enjoyable Fringe and relish the atmosphere of one of Europe's finest cities and the world's greatest arts festival.
