WELCOME TO THE 2011 FREE FESTIVAL Welcome to our programme of Free Edinburgh Fringe shows for 2011 - and this year we have our biggest ever selection of shows for you to see, with 6,184 performances of 352 shows in our venues – an amazing figure if you consider that in 2004 we started with only three shows in a single venue. This year we have brought together another giant selection of shows from around the world including headline comedy performers, hit cabaret shows, challenging theatre, outdoor stages full of entertainment, music and bands, children’s shows, mind-readers, magic and even a naked busker. All of this takes place in our 17 venues, all located around the centre of Edinburgh - and this year including four brand new venues hosting our free shows.

PUTTING THE ALTERNATIVE BACK INTO THE FRINGE One of our aims at the Free Festival is to produce a true fringe festival, with the best in new talent nestling alongside bigger names and with our shows and venues being easily accessible for audiences to enjoy as many shows as possible, and for performers to produce shows without facing the huge losses they make at a paid venue. A Fringe festival isn’t just about star names, like the Fringe pioneers back in 1947, who started the Edinburgh Fringe as an alternative to the International Festival, the Free Festival now exists as an alternative within the Fringe where performers are not charged thousands of pounds to take part, and audiences aren’t charged sky-high ticket prices. You can see as many shows at our venues for free, with performers asking for

a donation at the end of each performance if you liked the show. Go out and explore our venues and see something you wouldn’t normally!

WHO ARE WE? The Free Festival is organised by Alex Petty of Laughing Horse Comedy, along with a large team of volunteers and all of the performers producing and running shows. It’s a big team effort and we hope you enjoy our 2011 programme, which we think is our best, and our most fun filled ever!

TRYING TO KEEP THE FRINGE GREEN! There is a huge amount of paper printed at the fringe, which is one of the reasons that we only print a listings leaflet, rather than yet another expansive brochure – we don’t think you need another huge brochure when you can get all of our detailed show information from our website

www.freefestival.co.uk or through the Fringe’s main guide. Keep hold of this leaflet to remind you of where and when our shows are, and don’t forget to use the handy map to guide you around town!
