fringe adj beyond conventional limits, unorthodox; barely legal; Welcome to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Now in its 49th year, the Fringe has established a world-wide reputation for its three-week festival of theatre, comedy, music and dance. Thousands of performers from 35 different countries converge on Scotland’s capital to take part in a unique collaboration. Staying true to its first principal of open access, this unprogrammed event encourages performances from every type of artistic endeavour. Circus artists rub shoulders with puppeteers; dancers share digs with TV comedians and Shakespearean actors queue for their chips with opera singers.
