»7th Edinburgh Festival Fringe, rapp small Wginniilgs wTWl just eigJl^Foups, this yea^s 'al contains the work of 571 Companies from every corner of the gloj?€fmJncensored, or sel§j >y the Fringe Society in any way, but drawn to Edinburgh becausjr'of me Fringe's reputal exposing the best, there is a myriad of performances and exhit^lons tychoose from. Theatrj cbmedy, cabaret, musicals, dance and mime, classical music, roclyand fol^Tshows for children, lat shows for adults and street shows for everyone — it is all mere fo#vou to make your own personal discoveries. I expect you to go and see yoljBlifburites but urge you to be adventurous; to talk to people in queues and read what the papers say. The Fringe Programme is large and can seem daunting, but within its pages lie some of the most thrilling and exciting events — Famous names of stage and screen, first time writers, directors and performers, youth and school groups, university companies and people starting out on their professional career are set to entertain from early morning till late, late night. Whether you are an Edinburgher, a visitor, a performer or simply a passer-by, take advantage of and enjoy all that is on offer. 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 your programme. Flave a wonderful time this Summer and enjoy soaking up the atmosphere of this very special festival city. There is nowhere quite like it anywhere else in the world.
