Edinburgh Fringe 2019

Virgin arches on the Royal Mile

The Edinburgh International Festival may have come first, but generally it's the Fringe that Edinburgh is best-known for. There's really nothing quite like it - "the largest show on Earth".

The stats bear that out: 2019 will see 3,841 shows in 323 venues across Scotland’s capital city. It's a sprawling, anarchic, sleepless month of live performances. There are hundreds of free shows and pay-what-you-want shows at the Fringe as well.

Chris Pine in Outlaw King

I rarely review films anymore having swapped writing for making my own very modest efforts in the medium and working on other productions.
