The BBC returns to the picturesque surroundings of George Heriot's School for the second year for Fringe 2017.

Many well-known personalities of the small screen can be found here each day. Highlights include well-loved Radio 4 shows such as Just a Minute, Loose Ends and Front Row and some of the best programmes from Radio 3, including In Tune and Late Junction. Radio Scotland’s popular Janice Forsyth programme returns to the Festivals, along with special editions of Breaking the News. And there’ll be plenty of laughs when the BBC Radio New Comedy Award holds its live final in Edinburgh.

Shows include Q&A style panels where, for example, journalists, presenters, comedians, and producers will share personal insights into the world of broadcasting and performance.


Tickets for top BBC shows are available until 11pm on Sunday 2nd July, and tickets will be allocated by random draw.

You can apply for tickets to as many shows as you like. However, tickets are limited to two or four per recording and should you be successful, you will only receive tickets for a maximum of six BBC events at this year's festival.
