FESTIVAL' FRINGE

Aug

11th - 31st

*s Pleased t° support the Fringe

1991


very warm and happy welcome to the 45th Edinburgh Festival Fringe, one of the world's greatest and most famous celebrations of the arts. This August over 500 itish and overseas companies from as far afield as Voronezh, Venice, Nairobi, Osaka, ombay, Adelaide, La Paz, Nassau and Toronto will gather in Edinburgh to present a ultural display unparalleled anywhere else in the world. From Cymbeline on Calton Hill; azz in the park on a Summer's afternoon; magic in the morning; fast-talking stand-up late night to poetry in the courtyard; Shakespeare for breakfast; classical interludes at lunch; ceilidhs after dark, there is theatre to fill every hour of the day. Within these pages, I hope that you will find hours of pleasure. Do with it what you will, but don't be afraid to be adventurous. Talk to people in queues, do some eavesdropping, read what the papers have to say, see your favourite names and make your own discoveries, but above all enjoy the Fringe in all its guises. Amateur and professional, famous and infamous, inside or outside, Edinburgh will be transformed by the Fringe into the largest stage in the world. If this is your first Fringe, I hope that it will become as important an event to you as it has to many thousands of people over the years. To our old friends welcome back and to the companies taking part, congratulations on making this year's Programme so diverse and interesting. Have a wonderful time this August and enjoy soaking up the atmosphere of this very special festival.

Mhairi Mackenzie-Robinson Administrator June 1991

STIFF UPPER LIP? Oh come on, loosen up a bit. This is the Fringe, after all. Why not have a good laugh for a change? Try some live cabaret at the Fringe Club. And while you're at it, listen to some of the great bands that appear here every night, dance in the disco, eat, drink and generally let your hair down at the Fringe Club. But don't forget that to get in, you'll need a Fringe Club Card. They're available now from the Fringe Office, 180 High Street, Edinburgh. Or on the night at the Club itself in Teviot Row, Bristo Square. FRINGE

18th AUGUST?

Having a wonderful time at Fringe Sunday, of course. Once every year, Holyrood Park comes alive with Fringe Performers, buskers, fire-eaters, jugglers, tightrope walkers, pipe bands, kite shows, hot air balloons, inflatables and much, much more. Fringe Sunday, set against the stunning backdrop of Arthur's Seat, is the busiest, liveliest spectacle of

its kind anywhere in the country. And it's free. It's the perfect day out for all the family, with many special events laid on for children. And plenty of refreshments on offer. Last year, around 150,000 people came along to join in the fun. So whatever else you do, don't forget to come to Fringe Sunday. Look out for a more detailed leaflet nearer the time.

But, they will need a Fringe Club Card to get in. They're available now from the Fringe Office, 180 High Street, Edinburgh. Or on the night at the Club itself in Teviot Row, Bristo Square. FRINGE

CLAY SCULPTURE BY LORRAINE FERNIE To Lorraine Fernie Art is about the spirit. Although the figures are not traditional characters each is made to convey its own inner self. Forms echo fire or water, plant and animal characteristics. Ornament is used as a social covering for nakedness. The spectator should be able to feel the way that the figure responds to life. Some enjoy, some endure, some are proud or angry, while others are broken. All must find the energy to live. THE ADAM POTTERY VENUE 135 76 HENDERSON ROW TEL 557 6978 3rd-31st AUGUST MONDAY-SATURDAV
