A Fringe Affair (but not the show by Edward W. Feery that was on this year)

Edinburgh in August is a fascinating place, as one of the largest art festivals in the world descends on my city. And, yes, one of the shows was named "A Fringe Affair", and was really good, and I have totally stolen the name for it for this article.

I've actually written a song to express how it feels to be in Edinburgh in August:

This year, the Festival's theme was "Bin Strike", and they went all in, with trash bags piled high, papers littering the ground, and rubbish bins overflowing everywhere. The smell was so realistic!

This month, we'll look back at the street in the years before the apocalyptic theme of this Fringe Festival. Next month – presuming the performers I contacted get back to me, or our readers have images they'd like to submit – we'll have shows themselves.

On the street

Performers fill the street, working the crowds, trying to either gain tips from their prowess or lure people into shows...

Glad to do it! As I said, I'm poking some theatrical groups to get more for next month, fingers crossed.... Only have like three or four photos of performers on Commons at the moment, so I definitely will need some additions.
