RALLY!! Edinburgh Fringe Festival August 2010
We are organising a get-together up near Edinburgh this August between 8-16th for the Fringe and Tattoo.
We took our 16 year old son two years ago and Edinburgh becomes the 'City That Never Sleeps' for three weeks a year. We walked from comedy gig to lecture to jazz gig to seedy bar to big funk gig to art exhibition. The streets are packed with jugglers, stilt walkers, Russians playing brass instruments exquisitely, pavement artists etc etc. BRILLIANT FUN!!!
We thought that if you fancy going we can organise a loose get-together rather than formal meeting. Do our own thing but have a group as well.

Welcome to edfringe.com
Fringe 2009 runs from 7-31 August and we’d love you to join us. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is still the world’s largest arts festival, presenting 31,320 performances of 2,088 shows in 247 venues last August. Fringe 2009 promises the same inspirational mix of theatre, comedy, music, dance and children’s entertainment in Scotland’s stunning, iconic capital city. It’s no wonder that Rough Guides voted the Edinburgh Festival the UK’s number one tourist experience.
