Endingburgh Fringe festival is back this summer for another round of Comedy fun. With exciting new comedians and a myriad of side-shows including, cabaret, clubbing, theatre and much more, Fringe festival has got something on offer for everyone.

Edinburgh Fringe festival started back in 1947, when eight theatre groups turned up uninvited to perform at the (then newly formed) Edinburgh International Festival, an initiative created to celebrate and enrich European cultural life in the wake of the Second World War. The formality of not being part of the official programme of the International Festival didn’t stop these troupes, they just went ahead and staged their shows on the fringe of the Festival anyway, coining the phrase, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Since the dawn of this spontaneous artistic movement, millions have flocked to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to produce, and to enjoy art of every genre.
