Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Friday 28th August - Sunday 30th August



Hi all,

Its Edinburgh Fringe time! (already?!). This year really is flying by!

First off the bat, it is still possible to book a train for only ?15 (single) to Edinburgh from Birmingham (departing New Street at 08:03 on the Friday), but the tickets arent likely to be there at that price for long. Check out www.thetrainline.com for that.

Next, private single rooms are available in the heart of Edinburgh for only ?42 per night. They're available via Edinburgh University (Edinburgh First) through laterooms.com. Heres the link:

http://www.laterooms.com/en/hotel-reservations/84026_edinburgh-first-hotel-university-edinburgh-edinburgh.aspx

You may want to meet at Birmingham New Street to go up to Edinburgh together on the train. Otherwise, lets rendezvous in Edinburgh at the accommodation from 2pm in the afternoon. There are details on how to get there via the above link. We can also swap mob numbers closer to the time to keep in touch. Then it'll be a case of freshening up before hitting the fringe.

If you book up, please let me know!

Any questions, drop me a line.

cheers

Shaun



What is the Edinburgh Fringe?

One of the largest arts festivals in the world, the Edinburgh Fringe has over the years even outgrown its parent event, the Edinburgh International Festival, which runs in tandem.

Its origins go back to 1947 when eight theatre groups turned up uninvited to the International Festival and were obliged to find alternative venues 'on the fringe' in order to perform.

'The Fringe' has grown to immense proportions and with many organised and impromptu events, it often gives unknown artists their first break.

Claiming to be the world's largest festival, the organisers sell well over a million tickets each year for exhibitions, theatre, music and, the largest category of all, comedy acts.

Performances are spread over hundreds of venues including many of the city's pubs and clubs.
